Middle of Nowhere
Your space! Your stage!
We meet where all things start. Nowhere.
Where in Nowhere you ask? The Middle of course!
Come share your passions, your arts, your sun baked ideas
Don’t be so selfish as to keep them to yourself!
What you do is meaningful to us!
A place that begs for you to give yourself
So, what does that nonsense mean?
We have an amazing shared community structure, the Red Stretch Tent, appropriately called The Middle of Nowhere (MoN). As it is smack in the middle of Nowhere.
A space and stage where you can share your passions, skills or arts, teach something, or entertain the other beautiful creatures of the Nowhere community!
“Okay, sounds great! But how!?” we hear you ask. By creating NoProgram together!
Our NoProgram is that schedule of events we create together and we publish in the WhatWhereWhenGuide.
Things you might want to think about:
- What, Where, When and How-long.. (fixed finishing-time or possibly a stretch-time?)
- Technical or Props (lighting, sound, projections, table(s), pillows, mats, electricity…?)
- Supporter (sound engineer/light designer, stagehand, décor for special setup or rearranging formation, or the sound/lighting man to make your show an amplified and shining spectacle, or simply to assure your microphone works properly?)
- Material needs you may have to purchase.. Fill out the Performance Grant Form below…
What we facilitate:
- The space
- Occasional ideational, logistical, emotional and spiritual support
What you provide:
- Everything else you need for your creation!
Read on for inspiration!
What you share, is a welcomed gift to the community. We know like no others, what the first steps feel like. Feeling the vulnerability even before starting, the fears that come with being seen. With a little doubtful voice in the back of our minds, we might be asking ourselves..
- Will I / this be interesting enough..?
- Is my idea worthy of this big red tent..?
- Will I be able to organize this all by myself..?
- Is there really interest in our community for this..?
- What happens if I forget what I want to do or say…?
The only way to find the answer to these questions is by saying YES!! And doing it together!!
Grab life by the proverbial amaze-balls and come kick ass! At Nowhere, there is no doing it alone. We are here to welcome each other in our glorious attempts!
To get you inspired we made a little overview. Because, there is no better place to start, than Nowhere…

To let everyone know about your event!
NowHere has created a Program-Guide for the events that take place throughout the week at Nowhere. But you have to submit your event with us before it can be included into the WWW-guide.
The What Where When Guide is both a webpage for which you can submit your event and where you can browse everyone else’s events, and create your own calendar for things you want to do during Nowhere. And, it is the Printed Program-Guide, which you will receive at the gate when you arrive at Nowhere.
When you have submitted your workshop, event or activity with us, we will provide you with a code for placement in the WWW-guide.
The deadline for submitting your events to the WWW-Guide is approximately end-June! Depending on the Printer-shop deadline..
Keep an eye on the website for more info!!
