### World’s Only First-Ever Ephemerisle Festival

_October 2nd-4th, Sacramento Delta, CA_

To make seasteading happen, we need practice as well as theory, which is why this year our conference is accompanied by the first ever [Ephemerisle festival](http://ephemerisle.org) of politics, community, and art. Out on the water we’ll work, play, talk, and immerse ourselves in a deep but temporary world of possibility. We’re constructing 3 main platforms (a prototype is pictured above, holding a coffeeshop-in-a-trailer), to which numerous houseboats, ships, and homebuilt platforms will dock – each with their own set of laws. And we’ve awarded 7 grants so far to [art projects](http://ephemerisle.org/art.html) such as those pictured below:

The attendees of this year’s Ephemerisle will be able to say, for the rest of their lives: “I was there when it all started.” Don’t miss your chance to begin at the beginning and contribute to the future of an event that will change the world – [register today](http://ephemerisle.org/getready.html)!
