The Nomadness... 

We need the start-up capital to purchase equipment that is essential to the art installations that we create. Even if we don't reach our set goal, all of the funds that we raise will go directly into sourcing these materials.

The creation of the new Lucid Forest, a fully mapped and interactive projection forest, may not happen if we can't raise the funds to do it! We need your help! No amount is too small. Every little bit helps! The Wild Monkeys need some fuel!

In addition to the Walkabout Woods 2.0 and Lucid Forest, your contribution will help specifically fund more amazing projects we want to bring to the village of Nomads' Nook, a village within Lucidity Festival known for music, dancing, and large, interactive, art installations. This fully mapped projection forest will have a life beyond this one festival... please help make it a reality!

Note from the nook

We are advocates for equal pay for festival artists; not that DJs and producers aren’t worth the money, on the contrary, we believe that everyone contributing is worth the money and it's sadly not distributed evenly... However, this is not about getting paid!

It's about covering the costs associated with making these unforgettable moments...

Do the math...

Music is ART and Music with out ART is, well, just Music, and Art with out Music is kind of boring...

That being said-

We have a small budget every year that we would like to use to help pay for collaborators and their expenses, not on renting equipment that we could own and share with everyone involved!

Your contribution will help us create amazing art installations, bring in badass artist collaborators, and help pay for materials and shop fees.

Numerous expenses are incurred when it comes to building a Universe for participants, and you are going to help it run smoother!

Lets get down to brass monkeys…..Sooooo what do we need?

  • Alien technology computer processing

  • High powered Laser

  • Multiple hardware mixers

  • Several quality 5k projectors or higher

  • One 10k projector

  • New computer system (that we will build) to run the projectors

  • Multiple licenses for the various types of required software

  • Lighting rig and adequate mounting equipment

  • Bananas

  • Truck and Heavy equipment rentals

  • Transportation fees for collaborators

  • Power tools and extension cords

By helping support us, you will be an integral participant in this creative process, and we want to shower you with love, appreciation, and some swag! Yes... there are a few great perks we want to share with you for supporting the Wild Monkeys at work in the Nook. They are listed on the sidebar. Look them over, and choose the level at which you can contribute.

If you just can't donate at this time...

THAT'S OK!!! We still love you!
And we hope you will take a few moments to help spread the word about our amazing endeavor by using the share tools here!
