TRIBAL MARKET

Our Tribal Market plans to be bustling with unique vendors from the community. These artisans will be bringing one of a kind pieces, handcrafted goodies, feathery goodness and costume pieces galore for your purchase. You’re sure to find a thing or two to compliment your costumes, fill your tummy or soothe your skin. So plan on bringing SOME CASH to spend on these wonderful creations!

****************
DECOR & ART INSTALLATIONS

Art & decor are at the very core of every festival. They create a fun landscape or visual candy for us to explore and appreciate. If you have the desire to share your art with the community, please contact decor[at]intentiongathering[dot]org .

****************
CO-CREATION

As part of our event co-creation, we are asking all participants to sign up for a shift to complete their registration. This may include welcoming people at the gate, helping with decor, cooking for your friends in the kitchen, being a calm presence at peer support, facilitating a game in the Kids' zone or helping to make sure we leave the venue as beautiful as it was when we arrived. You can choose which parts of the event you are stoked to support.

If you would like to shape the event in a bigger way, please email info[at]intentiongathering[dot]org for information on our planning meetings!

*******************
AND MORE

Everyone is encouraged to find their own way to connect into the festival flow and become involved in the daily life, music and general production of the event.

Intention is co-creative and participant-driven. It is an opportunity to work together with old friends and new faces to create a safe container for a rich exploration of music, art, self-expression and creativity. We are always looking for volunteers to help with organizing and creation. If you would like to be involved in the organization process, please contact the organizing team at info[at]intentiongathering[dot]org .

IMPORTANT ACKNOWLEDGMENT

We acknowledge that this event takes place on the traditional, occupied and unceded territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Nation. In doing so we recognize our responsibility to never forget the ongoing legacy of genocide and commit to co-creating a space where diversity may thrive.
