F2E is a fully interactive, immersive, themed atmospheric art event that embraces the merging of the natural and technological in our artwork, music, and community. We have some seriously amazing installations and artists in the works for this.
Put on a helmet and change the visuals WITH YOUR MIND. Arrange the magnetic light sculpture to your satisfaction. Obtain a robot avatar of yourself and watch it grow. Wear a costume. You ARE the event.

We are excited to present an absolutely stellar musical line-up, including some of Australia and the world’s most exciting new electronic music, side by side with Portland’s finest!

We are happy to present the very talented ladies of BRIDGETOWN REVUE and SPARKLING SPATS performing their special variety of beautiful, thematic dance presentations.

CHICKENHED will be bringing you their own brand of outlandish levity. Get ready for the POST- CONSCIOUSNESS INTRA-ACTIVE PRAYERFORMANCE!

Prizes for the best ROBOT FLOWER costume!

UNITEA will be crafting their relaxing, thoughtful environment for your reflective moments, INSIDE OF A BUBBLE! C’mon you know you want to drink tea in a bubble!

Matt Schlosky, Josh Spair, and other wonderfully talented visual artists will be rendering their gifted visions live for us as we transcend.

One of you lucky participants in our co-operative journey towards a higher awareness will be selected to be our special representative to other ascendant cultures throughout the galaxy! As such, this person will be entitled to every privilege therein. Could be your night…

When you step through the portal on this night, you will be entering the garden of your future. A collaborative effort between numerous very talented visual artists, this will be a land of growth and an embracing of our higher-selves. Mechanical trees. DNA strings. Plexigrass. Robotic foliage. It goes on. You have never seen Refuge look like this before.

Immortalize yourself in style with PHOTOSYNTHESIS PHOTOGRAPHY!

IXIKOS will transhumanistically transform you with his technical wizardry.

We don’t want you to just show up to this event. We want you to BE this event! As such, futurist garden themed costumes are HIGHLY encouraged!
Plus, you get 5 bucks off at the door if you are in costume!
Can’t wait to see what this awe-inspiring community of brilliant creators will come up with!

Check out the unique and inspired pieces made for you by some of Portland’s finest designers! MOUNTAIN MAYHEM, CONSCIOUS COLLECTIVE, VAUNTVILLE, CIRQUE, SE GRIND, AND MORE.

The following day, (March 25), Mr. Bill will be presenting a music production workshop at The Watershed. You could really learn a thing or two from this crazy genius!

    oh man, I have a million and one reasons why I want to win this! The top 3, to keep it short & sweet :

    1. The obvious – it looks beyond amazing!
    2. I was recently forced to resign from my job and absolutely couldn’t afford to go otherwise.
    3. I need a revelation in my life real bad. This looks like just the place to have one.

    <3 fingers crossed!

    Pick me! I want to go! I am excited about the variety of stimulus that will greet me. I guess I get to bring part of the fun too. I just don’t know how my interpretation of a robot flower costume would look like. I look forward to the evening’s journey that is chaos working through a new order of humanity.

    I would like to win these for my boyfriend and I because our favorite place to go is the refuge. Lately he’s been paying for all our tickets whenever we go out to events like these because I’ve been saving for a car. Id like us to go without him having to pay. I have a son and so we only get to go out every other weekend and this is definitely something we would enjoy doing. :)

    I would like to attend because this term has been hell, and it would be the perfect kick off to Spring Break.

    I would love to go because I just had one hell of a hard winter term. Just finished three 10 page papers, and one 30(!) page paper, 3 finals, and I spent all of my money on coffee. Love the Refuge and this looks like a perfect way to kick off my spring break relaxin’ and raging with a trip from Eugene to beautiful Portland for this show!!!

  15. Jess March 22, 2012 at 10:53 am #

    Oooooh I would LOVE to go check this out! The refuge always hosts awesome shows but this one sounds extra interesting.. I don’t have much loot and can’t go otherwise, but this would be an awesome way to make my spring break special :) and I have the perfect outfit!

  16. Jenny March 22, 2012 at 12:39 pm #

    first off, epic night no doubt… question is why should i get tix? totally believe in and strive for the interconnected community vision that is being presented with this event…we need more of this type of creation and expression to truly thrive as individuals and as a collective…live to dance, life as dance, dance as art, art to live…so it goes…plus i have an amazing outfit planned and it’s one of my favorite people’s b-day’s…it’d be a perfect gift.

  17. Maggie Brees March 22, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    This looks like an excellent event, and I’d love to go! :)

  18. Michelle March 22, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    I just happen to have the perfect robot flower costume already! Check out my sick robot moves.

  19. Jen March 22, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

    Since moving to PDX, I’ve hooked into one lovely burning man -friendly event at Refuge. I would love tickets. Cheers – !

  20. JohnnyBoy March 22, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    I’m so overdue for just such an event, that I just HAD to say so, that I’d love to go.

  21. Bo March 22, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

    love the Bridgetown Revue gals and the whole extravaganza sounds like a wild ride not to be missed -b

  22. Iggy March 22, 2012 at 5:10 pm #

    Haven’t been to a Refuge event in a minute, and from what I’ve been told there’s some going to be some seriously next level ambiance at this show. Would love to attend but I’m broke!

  23. Nikkol March 22, 2012 at 6:36 pm #

    Epic, I need to fund my way to Eden

  24. Kari Luehring March 22, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

    I want to attend because I am broke as a joke and it has been more then a month since I have had the chance to dance my face off with all of my favorite creatively genius Portland people! Yay for being home and being surrounded by love!

  25. jess March 22, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

  27. Nick p March 23, 2012 at 11:19 am #

    I want to experience the budding singularity bursting forth in bloom from within the universe inside the living cell. I want to see all you beautiful cyber-hyacinths riding a wave of synths into the cave of invincible light and soul. I write this in the hopes that you pick it, cause apparently all I need for this ride is a ticket.

  28. Andrew "Panda" Chandler March 23, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    Because I need to see your Base Face mixed mixed with…. Robots and plants and peoples, lots of peoples, nice peoples, wonderful peoples, peoples that know how to have a good time!

  29. Tania Porter March 23, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    This is exactly the sort of event that would push my best friend’s comfort level to 11! I would love to take her after we go out for dinner tomorrow. *keeping fingers crossed that we can keep our night out revolving around past gift certificate purchases and free tickets*
