Not-Ephemerisle 2011

File:Ephemerisle1.jpg
Ephemerisle 2009

We are a gathering of thinkers, doers, artists, builders, and partiers interested in life on the water.

We construct a floating city on the Sacramento River Delta and live on it for four days. You could think of it as Burning Man on water, but there's a lot more to it. Burning Man is now a large, polished, centrally organized, and carefully controlled event. Not-Ephemerisle is more like Burning Man was in the early 1990s - a new adventure into an alien environment, with lots of discoveries, adventures, and mishaps along the way. There are no tickets, no central organizers, no rules, and no Rangers to keep you safe. It's true radical self-reliance. New to life on the water? So are we! We're figuring it out as we go.

Since there's no central organizer, the event only happens if people contribute. Here are some things you can do: Bring art, give talks, build your own boats and platforms, make music, help build this wiki, go wakeboarding and enjoy being a pioneer.

Pictures are often better than words. Here's a quick slideshow from the last two years of (not)Ephemerisles.

About the name

The Seasteading institute (http://seasteading.org/) threw a floating festival called Ephemerisle in 2009. They had to back out of the event the following year due to insurance problems. However, the attendees of the event just showed up anyways, and it became an independent event with no central organization. This year, it's independent from the beginning.
