wow, time sure flies when you’re having fun! we are just over two months out until the event and life is moving along nicely for our fire celebration!
earlier this week, we had a very successful and positive grant review with the Nevada Arts Council. we scored high percentage-wise and depending on budget cuts, we can appreciate very generous support from the council. this is awesome news, it all goes towards producing the event, and as it gets bigger, it’s amazing how much stuff costs and also heartening how many awesome people come together to make something like this work.
i met with todd south yesterday, and it’s looking promising for getting some live music into the event! we already had black rock city all-stars set to throw down with us, and now todd’s got something up his sleeve…stay tuned to see, we will post here once more details become clear.
i got confirmation also very recently that Unmata’s own Verbatim will be joining us. Along with Asha, there will be some belly shaking awesomeness happening for sure!
dave cherry, local burner and talented artist extraordinaire, has been working on our poster, and we are thankful and humbled by his talent! we will post the poster and postcard as soon as we finalize!
in other news, our special event application went in, we got insurance for the event, and most of our funding is secured. we are in the process of developing a site plan, and working out more more more logistics. i should be able to post a preliminary schedule soon, so stay tuned!
that was a lot of information, yo!
i will make every attempt to update more often as the event gets closer. stay tuned, everyone!
