Live Culture Coast Event Seeks Creative Builders & Designers


Creative Builders and Designers are invited to submit proposals to build “Culture Stands” for a new annual event.  Live Culture Coast will occur this October 18-27, 2019 and will bring together artists, farmers, outdoor recreationalists and community organizers to reclaim the future and ignite powerful community change in art, culture and local food systems. We will celebrate all that is good about the Southern Oregon Coast!

Are you a creative builder and designer?  Can you imagine an artistic farm stand on wheels that is ready to party and also reflects the ethos of the people and place of Oregon’s South Coast?  Can your mind imagine what that might look like?

Live Culture Coast will use the Culture Stand as a traveling visitor center, merchandise table. Then we’ll share it with south coast organizations and businesses to use throughout the year in creative ways.

Be part of something bigger!  Live Culture Coast will encourage Douglas, Coos, and Curry County residents to experience accessible local outdoor activities, introduce them to local food purchasing options, and offer examples on how to eat locally. 

At the same time, Live Culture Coast is designed to aid economic development by inviting out of area visitors to bring "new money" during off peak season to experience the bounty of the Southern Oregon Coast alongside residents.

The commissioning of local art and the hiring of paid contractors of all kinds to work on the event will also aid the local economy. 

Our aim is to create an anchor event which incubates projects which elevate the south coast as a place to try entrepreneurial ideas and market the area globally to bring more visitors that return to share the experience with friends.

The complete list of Live Culture Coast experiences will be announced on on July 29.
