Element 11 is a 5 day, 4 night Arts event that ignites a culture of creativity and self-expression, and incorporates principles such as self-reliance and civic responsibility. This is not a party or concert, but a radical celebration of shared values, art, and effort for the good of all.
Element 11 is not your usual gathering. In fact, it’s more of a temporary city. Our city is home to 1,800 participants who camp by themselves, or in camps centered on a particular theme. Our city is marked by the prevalence of art of all kinds. Examples of art you may find in your travels include static art installations, movable art (art cars), performances, workshops, and service projects. Live music and performance art abound as well, especially as the sun sets and the fun gets started; DJ’s, musicians, and dancing keep us on our toes into the night.
