About the Festival
The purpose of the Arts in Nature Festival is to center and celebrate local artists, gather as a community in nature, and demonstrate the intersection of art, nature and neighborhood. This family-friendly festival amplifies all aspects of DNDA’s work and offers an eclectic, community-oriented experience in the woods of Seattle’s only campground, Camp Long. You’ll find intimate performance stages, a wide array of creative disciplines, mixed-media installations, and interactive activities dispersed throughout the park.

Call for Performers
Performing artists of all disciplines are invited to apply. All performances must be suitable for all ages. Interactive performances are encouraged but not required. Performances will take place in four locations at Camp Long: the Lodge (indoors, amplified), the Meadow (outdoors, amplified), the Pond (outdoors, acoustic) and the Amphitheater (outdoors, acoustic). We also invite proposals for wandering, durational and non-site-specific performances.

Performing artist stipends (paid to the artist) are negotiated with DNDA’s Artist Curation Team and reviewed by the larger planning committee. All stipends are negotiable.

Call for Cabin Installation Artists
