20 Days Left for Ziza!

posted in: Art, Build | 0

It has been a whirlwind of a summer! We’ve been crazy busy creating Ziza and challenging ourselves on this little tea truck. We’ve had so much support and such an amazing crew. Many people have come from near and far to help us fabricate, paint, weld, etc. This past weekend Tigre Bailando came up from Oakland to design and paint the arch inserts and panels for Ziza.

 His designs and visions have really elevated Ziza. We are so grateful that he took the time to come up to Portland to help.

We’ve also finished the balcony and the stairs thanks to Lem!

We leave for the Playa in 20 days! (AHHHH) As you know from your own personal art projects, the last few weeks are totally insane!! Our crew has been working so hard to get her 100% ready for Playa. And we are really tapped both physically and financially. Now is the time where we need a bit more support for this final push. If you can donate your time, labor or even a bit of extra cash it will help us SO MUCH!

We don’t just need people who can work with metal and wood. We need tons of pillows stuffed and sewn shut. Plus curtains cut and seamed, futon covers embellished, supports painted, etc.

Don’t live in Portland? Don’t have any extra cash? You can volunteer with Ziza on Playa! You can be a hostess, run tea ceremony, help with crowd control, or just ride along one night as a spotter.

Please message us for details about donating and volunteering. We can’t wait to see you on Playa and THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!
