ANCHORS UP

After a 5 year sail, we're sad to announce the sinking of our Lugano vessel.  She was a mighty ship and will be missed.  No need for lifejackets just yet!  We're in the process of finding a new home for A SHIP IN THE WOODS, one worthy of charting even greater waters, but we need your help.

How you can help: 

1.  We are now accepting monetary DONATIONS as well as any other items or services of value we can auction off on June 27th.

You may donate any item(s) you would like. We will start receiving any items for the auction starting Monday June 8th. You can drop off items in person at 1660 Lugano Lane, Del Mar, CA 92014.

What your help supports: 

RESIDENCY PROGRAM: The residency provides a free space for innovative thinkers or anyone working on contemporary issues, a space to think and work on projects or use the time to discuss their message and ideas with the public that is vital for cultural change.

EVENTS: We host group art exhibitions, film screenings, musical performances, writers, researchers, happenings and other cultural discussions regarding the world as we know it. 

COLLABORATIONS: We encourage interdisciplinary collaborations which are often created through connections made at our events.   

We appreciate all the love and contributions from fellow shipmates, friends, and volunteers over the years.  The reason why we continue and exist is because of you.  With your help we'll  be able to continue these elevated dialogues and collaborations in art, science and culture.

Our possession of this world we have made ours is a grand larceny. And its victim is the commonwealth: the land, the genome, mother culture. We could say that property is what has been stolen from us all, or from Nature, or from God. In any event, our progressive ownership of the world naturally and inevitably accompanies our progressive estrangement from the world, so that in the end we languish in the prison of me and mine which, no matter how great our possessions, is far narrower and dingier than the unbounded Wild from whence we came."   Charles Eisenstein, "The Ascent of Humanity"
