Make-your-own dream house
We will host a rave-chill–teabar–hybrid, where we guarantee a base-level of coziness, beverage supply, ceremonies and activities, while much of the decorations, music and mood is imagined, created and updated by participants throughout the festival.
The idea is to fill a big tent with carpets and soft things to place bodies upon and under, instruments (electronic, purely acoustic and amplified acoustic), art supplies and a bar.
One wall will be open for painting on, with the canvas being replaced once it fills up, to make space for new imaginations. There will be materials available for creating string-art, as well as clay, smaller canvases and smaller decorative details selected to trigger your creativity. The created art will be put on display within the space.
There will be jam sessions, both more free-form and within the context of a beat laid down by digital equipment, which any participant is welcome to join using their own or our instruments. Daily tea-ceremonies will be held, we will host storytellings, there will be massage oils for whomever wants to give their best (new) friend a rub-down (or just smell them! (“them” being the oils (or the friend!))), and the bar will serve cold beverages.
We will also run a storytelling circle with 5–10 people. Create a empathetic environment to explore emotions and how to express through storytelling. Bridge the differences and build the common ground, experience the power of vulnerability.
We will use only water soluble colors for the painting, and keep a small bowl in which to wash brushes, as well as a larger container for old dirty water. All created art will be free to take after the festival, and anything unclaimed will be brought away by us. We will have a lost-and-found basket, as well as a station for waste.

Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
