Drop by the Arts in Nature Festival at Camp Long in West Seattle to see what local video poets are up to! The 20th annual Arts in Nature Festival will take place on the weekend of June 29-30 at Camp Long in West Seattle. This family-friendly celebration will feature live musical performances, interactive art installations, creative nature-based activities and a variety of art forms set in the lush 68-acre landscape of Camp Long. The theme for this year’s festival is “Harmony,” and it’s absolutely FREE to attend.
The NWFF showcase will include works by Pacific Northwest artists featured at Cadence: Video Poetry Festival in April 2019, programmed in collaboration with Chelsea Werner-Jatzke. Videopoetry is the synthesis of two types of imagination—where verse meets visuals in motion to create meaning that would not exist if the text was without image, the image without text.
The festival lineup will include over 40 local artists across a variety of creative disciplines, including 8 interactive art installations set in Camp Long’s rustic cabins. The lineup currently includes local favorites like Strong Sun Moon, Amanda Jorgenson and Orion Misciagna.
With family-friendly fun all weekend long, you can create your own masterpieces and enjoy cool sights and sounds in Seattle’s only campground. A convoy of delicious, local food trucks will be available if you get hungry, and adults can wet their whistle at our festival beer garden.
Arts in Nature Festival is presented by Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association.
