Alchemy is the fall burn put on by Flashpoint Artists initiative.  Alchemy is a place where artists and creative people of all types can come together and experience art and music, and get to know each other through participation in a temporary autonomous community that is free from the things that define ordinary society, such as the constructs of consumerism and the expectations of ‘societal norms.’ It is a burn event, focused on art, expression, and inclusion. The environment created is centered on the expression of the participants in whatever manner they see fit, as long as they abide local, state, and federal laws.

Alchemy 2016 is over. Planning for Alchemy 2017 will begin in the new year.  If you want to keep informed on plans for 2017, subscriibe to our e-newsletter, the Alchemist.

Photos and video from Alchemy 2016 are now coming in.
