SPACENESS is a celebration of time, space and the unknown through experimental art, media and performance. Each year SPACENESS takes over the Sou’Wester Lodge in Seaview, WA, as well as the adjacent forest, seashore and wild spaces.
The next celebration of Spaceness is MARCH 2-4, 2018. Spaceness is FREE and welcoming to people of all ages. We recommend attendees secure lodging at one of the many comfortable establishments in the nearby towns of Astoria (OR), Ilwaco, Seaview, and Long Beach (WA) to enjoy the entire weekend of programming.

CALL TO ARTISTS
Entering the twenty-first century we have myriad human theories and logical arguments that explain the existence of our galaxy, the heavens, and the universe; however, that pool of knowledge is insufficient in addressing what we still do not know – the things that baffle and confound our species – truths that may evade us for eternity. These are the concepts that fall under the definition of “spaceness’.
