Postal service is coming to the Quarry for the second year! 💕🍉🌻 Ever dreamt of sending letters to fellow Borderlings? To yourself in the future? And while doing so to relax in a nice chill-out space? Here you go! :))
Our purpose is to bring another layer of magical communication to the Borderland, to facilitate even deeper connection between the Borderlings, and to stimulate self-reflections. We dream of creating a social space where we could host workshops and write letters, a lot of letters 💌
The idea is to have a workshop/discussion space during the day which would transform itself into chill-out space with visual art. At all times, it would allow Borderlings to write letters of different forms and connect with others and oneself, especially through written communication, though cuddling is also encouraged ❤️
Physically, the Post Office will be a 6x12m tent consisting of:
1) Large chill-out space with carpets, pillows and some furniture for writing letters :)
2) Self-service bar which would serve tea and provide postal accessories (envelopes, stamps, etc.)
Additionally, we'll facilitate
3) All the camps to have their mail boxes so that letters can get delivered :)
