We had a great time at the Burn this year feeding people that were passing by and are looking forward to doing it again at NECTR.

|Burnable Thing||Ryan’s Famous||Feast will burn at midnight (Saturday)||Once the table is under the structure we will play music possibly have a ballet ceremonially light the last last supper of the movable feast.

|Clothing Giveaway Installation||The Bee Hole||Ongoing||
Come on up the hill to The Bee Hole for some clothing and random other goodies.
We’ll happily accept donations of clothing, costumes, accessories, bedding, and functional camping gear you are looking to give to our community. Also plastic and wooden clothing hangers are supper helpful! Keep in mind NECTR can get cold, so sweaters, long pants, and coats are typically hot items. Try to bring donations earlier in the event so everyone gets a chance to take a look before haul out.
Men’s and plus sizes clothing always seem to be greatly underrepresented at clothing swaps/giveaway camps. I’m excited to say this year The Bee Hole received an art grant to help supplement this gap in supply and demand!!
Leftover clothing will either be donated to Windham Area Interfaith Ministry in support of the homeless and those in need in Andover and its surrounding area or placed in storage for the following year’s event.

|Nevermore (and other works)||Near Dance Camp||Ongoing||
An experimental sound collage, Nevermore is a collection of 12 independent computer-driven speakers that generate complete soundscapes from randomly triggered collections of loops and samples. The soundscapes you hear are not recorded as a whole, but assembled from curated samples from various online archives and repositories. For example, the bird calls in Nevermore are sourced from field recordings hosted by the Macaulay Library of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The artist has done significant post-processing and tweaking of the random parameters to produce a coherent whole.
Participants are invited to press a button on the controller to choose a different soundscape. Please be gentle.
