Rainforest Circus: Submerged
The Rainforest Circus – Submerged is a vibrant theatrical presentation that takes place in a forest. It will incorporate aerialists among the trees, original music and soundscape, clown, dance, poetry and installation art – all inspired by the theme of water—woven together into a live performance. It is a collaborative and dynamic experience between performer, audience, and the forest.

On going Art Farm Volunteer Opportunities
If you are interested in getting to know the Art Farm, volunteering is a good place to start. We have a number of projects and events on the go that could use extra hands and imaginations.
The Cob House – On our property we have a small cob structure with a built in oven. The dream is for this to become a community cooking space. It currently needs shelving, and other interior fixtures.
The Garden – We can always use hands for property maintenance, from cutting the lawn to planting more vegetables. There’s seven acres of west coast wilderness we are slowly developing into a sustainable hub.
Programming – All of our art and nature projects are for community building. If you would like to be involved with any specific project feel free to contact us.
If you are inspired to start something new on our parcel of land or in the community we’d love to hear from you too.
