Center Camp

Lead:  Daniel Holmes

Typically Center Camp hosts many sound events - DJ’s of all types are invited to participate with Center Camp to make the space a very up-beat, laser-filled, thumping music area. Center Camp has also been known to invite people to host workshops and other events as well. Every Center Camp lead in the past has executed a unique vision on how to orchestrate something like Center Camp. This year, center camp would like to continue that tradition, and take a turn at a unique vision that changes the “vibe” of Center Camp all together. Sit with a friend and have a conversation or take a breath alone to center yourself at Center Camp. Listen to the person speaking poetry or playing a harmonic acoustic melody on stage.

Types of events:

  • Performance Art
  • Spoken Word Poetry
  • Music of all types
