“SPACENESS is an annual event that brings artists and thinkers together on the Long Beach Penninsula on the Washington Coast to explore our shared experiences of time and space and the gaps in our understanding of the universe. This 3-day event takes place at The Sou’wester and features visual art as well as music, performance, experiments, and lectures.

The event is FREE to the public for people of all ages. We recommend attendees secure lodging at one of the many comfortable establishments in Seaview and Long Beach, WA to enjoy the entire weekend of programming.”

A detailed schedule of events will be posted one week before the event.

Programming begins at 5pm on Friday Feb 19th and ends at 3pm on Sunday Feb 21st.

Please note the schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and inevitable life forces.
