What to expect when expecting

As you know last week we finished the registration for camps and art and I am excited to tell you

182 camp are registered

243 art installations, 10 of which are performance based

40 art cars

I’d say that’s a pretty good start.

Theme for Real

I'm a simple bear, so I didn't always get why we need a different theme each year. But the truth is that somehow, each year really represented the theme. Last year I really felt like I was coming home. This year our theme is transition - to me that means change, a period of in between, movement. What do you think of when you hear transition?

In this issue we talked a lot about how to get tickets, we know that most tickets are designated for people who bring something to the table, and the truth is this venture, this city in the desert doesn't exist without all of us participating. But is participation more than how we get tickets? Is it actually why we are doing this whole thing?
