Center Camp Cafe Decor Craft Party!

TONIGHT! Wednesday, June 23rd

Howdy Crafty Crafterinos!

The Center Camp Cafe is proud to announce the SECOND Craft Party of 2010,
hosted by the Cafe Decor Team, on this coming Wednesday, June 23!  We're
continuing to sew up those Crown Flags, assemble our 'laundry line' decor,
and paint, paint, PAINT some c-razy street signs!

We'll have hearty snacks and delicious drinks, smiling faces, sewing
machines, paint, wood, fabric, and tons of pointy scissors to run with so
come on down.  You don't need to be going to Burning Man 2010 to come and
have fun with the Cafe Decor Crew!

WHO- You, your friends, your dog, your brother, your sister, your mother,
WHAT - Cafe Decor Craft Party
WHEN - Wednesday, June 23, 6PM-10PM
WHERE - Burning Man HQ: 3450 Third Street Suite #2A / SF, CA 94124 (
WHY?! - Do you need a reason to get crafty!?

**Fabric: Donations are awesome!  We're looking for long-sleeved
shirts (any color) for our 'laundry-line' project, and can sometimes use
 other random fabric for....random projects, so check with us and we'll
see if we can use it.

** Sawing:  Got a Jigsaw?  Bring it for cutting wood/masonite signs.
We'll have some extra blades, but best if you have spares too.

**Painting:  We've got some brushes, but BYO if you have 'em.
Water-based/acrylic paints will be used (no oil-base paint) - and we'll
take donated house-paint in any color!**

** Cutting: We've got fabric scissors, but feel free to BYO fave pair.
PINKING SHEARS might be useful too, so BYO those if you've got 'em.

 **Sewing: We try to provide enough sewing machines - but some of you have
 sweet sergers (and the Cafe only owns standard machines) and we love
having 1 or 2 sergers on hand.  We've discovered that some things are
best sewn with a serger, and some with a standard machine.  Feel free to
 BYO standard machine if it's easy for you, but it's likely you can use
one of ours.**

While an RSVP is not required, we do like to plan for food and FUN, so let
us know:

Indiana Street @ Cesar Chavez

The purpose of the Superhero Street Fair is to recognize people and organizations, throughout the Bayview Community, for their outstanding contribution to the arts and/or community action efforts.  We wish to provide a platform to showcase their achievements, and enjoy a day of celebration and community.  There will be art exhibits, live theatre and poetry, live and electronic music, food, and an awards
ceremony recognizing specific individuals and organizations for their contribution.  Ceremonies will include the Mayoral proclamation of “SuperHero Day” in San Francisco.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit local organizations for their outstanding achievement. The organizers of this event will also assist in cleaning up the area, a spot often neglected but deserving of attention.

You won’t want to miss this wacky and wonderful event that is packed full of top notch music, art, performers, and thrilling extreme sports.  There is no time to waste, come out and share your Super-ness with the rest of the Superheroes on the street.

We are looking for some amazing ART CARS to participate in “SPACE JAZZ”, this year’s 2ND Annual SUPERHERO Street Fair!  We have expanded this year’s street fair to include prime real estate so that you can showcase YOUR fantastic Art Car!

Sacred Spaces Village "Mystic Metropolis" at Burning Man 2010

If you would like to play music with us, provide a workshop, offer your healing services, bring ceremony, offer live art, etc. We'd love to hear from you. For our Main Stage: We're looking for downtempo/world fusion DJs, live kirtan and other spiritually based bands and singer/songwriters, thought-provoking dance & ritual, etc.

In addition to our normal host of spiritually-oriented and visionary art workshops we are also doing a series on the Metropolis theme exploring issues of urban architecture, renewable energy, building community, permaculture, and other aspects of sustainable design.

WORKSHOP PROPOSAL: In order to make sure we are listed in the WWW on the playa, we ask that you get your proposals BEFORE JUNE 26.

We are looking for: mystics, educators, intimacy creators, sacred sexuality and Tantra teachers, NVC facilitators,  musicians, visionary art (printed on sturdy vinyl or fabric, please!), awareness-building indie films, sculpture (particularly mobiles and sculptures that can be suspended from domes), projections, VJs, DJs, yogis, healers and more...
If all goes as planned (and we're crossing or fingers) Sacred Spaces will be located at approximately Esplanade and 6:30.

You do not have to camp with SSV to perform or teach, but you ARE responsible for your own transportation and Burning Man ticket. In some cases, the camp will support the materials, transportation or equipment needed for your project.

To make this easy : we have an event/music/workshop proposal form on our main website. LINK BELOW.

Sacred Spaces Village, one of Burning Man's largest theme villages, was part of Entheon Village in 2008 where we created the Pantheogenesis Temple. In 2009, we were located at 5:00 and Esplanade and brought two large domes and a stage with more than 40 workshops and performances and 30+ visionary artists.  We have been continually pushing the cutting edge of visionary aesthetics and metaphysical culture and this year will blend the best of both our 2008 temple and our 2009 infrastructure to create the Mystic Metropolis!

Sacred Spaces is a container for personal connection to the divine with workshops devoted to sacred expression and visionary culture, including the playa's largest protected visionary art gallery, daily yoga and kirtan, sacred sexuality, non-violent/compassionate communication, healing arts, sound healing, permaculture, ecological sustainability, sacred geometry, raw food, quartz crystal matrixes, visionary film and more....all in one of the most visible locations at Burning Man.

This year, we will have:
- a large main stage amphitheater directly on The Esplanade with a sound system and several folks in the village with professional festival/stage management experience.
- EIGHT big, beautifully decorated domes and yurts, from 20 ft. to 42 ft. in diameter, arranged in a circle as the 8 Chakras with a courtyard in the center. (Lots of space for sculptural installations here!)  Two of these domes will have smaller sound systems and live acoustic music or downtempo/chill/ambient DJs
1st Chakra -  Women's Mysteries, Earth Wisdom, Primal Power, Moon Cycle Magik, Fertility Awareness          
2nd Chakra - Sacred Connection, Intimacy, Co-Creativity, Relationships, Tantra, Sensuality
3rd Chakra -  Men's Mysteries, Will, Male Self Empowerment, Solar Magik, Native Ancestry
4th Chakra -  Healing Sanctuary, Heart Awakening, Bodywork, Emotional Expression     
5th Chakra -  Communication Modalities, Music, Sound Healing, Language, Poetry      
6th Chakra -  Visionary Art, Spirit Vision, Divination, Speakers tent, The Future of Our World
7th Chakra - Silent Meditation, Galactic Awareness, Integration, Illumination
8th Chakra - Global Unity, Yoga, Dance, Movement, Downtempo music

Also in 2010 we're collaborating with Bhakti Fest, Krishna Camp and Mystic Garden Party on producing an awesome devotional music stage, and continuing and expanding our tradition of sacred art, sacred food, and sacred community.
