As if Symbiosis Gathering could get any more unique and artistic, the festival has initiated a first-of-it’s-kind Art Boat program for its 10 year Re:Union. Taking advantage of the pristine 2,900 acre Woodward Reservoir, custom-built Art Boat vessels will offer participants an interactive aquatic escapade not seen at any other gathering.
Symbiosis Gathering has taken the mutant vehicles of Burning Man and turned them on their head, replacing the barren desert and Art Cars with a lush reservoir, complete with floating art installations and decorated boats to climb aboard. From stationary sculptures, to human and wind-powered cruising vessels, and motor-powered ferries, the Art Boats at Symbiosis will be as diverse as the attendees. Adhering to the principles of co-creation, all Symbiosis community members are welcome to build and bring their own Art Boat. Guidelines, rules, and a registration application can be found on Symbiosis’ website HERE.
Symbiosis Gathering offers its community a multitude of experiences that range from a finely curated musical lineup that includes artists like Nicolas Jaar, Cocorosie, Tipper, and Four Tet, to otherworldly art installations, immersive live performances, diverse panel discussions, yoga, gourmet food, and a slew of participatory environments. Just a week or so after Burning Man, Symbiosis is the perfect place to decompress and feel the magic of an artistic community one more time before venturing back into default world. That’s what we plan to do, anyway!
Symbiosis gathers a myriad of cultural creatives within a stunning natural location. Held near the border of the Sierra Nevada foothills, and built around a naturally occurring 5-pointed peninsula. Attendees can literally swim (or boat) between stages to catch headliners. We’ve heard nothing but good things about this bi-annual gathering, and advise you check it out!
