Bacchanalia – finding the space

Finding the right space for this event has been a challenge. Asking local establishments if we can get naked there during business hours is always a challenge. Originally we decided on the Silo, the place art cars go to die. It met many of our requirements. It was unusual. It housed art. It was outside. They would have let us burn things.

We had the music – Serum Fantis, Ak’Chamel, and Church of Melkarth. We had the venue. I could worry about logistics and the next event in the weeks to come. Until the ball dropped – and I mean that in the least naked way possible. Ken, a great guy and owner of the Silo, had a conflict of interest with a social partner. He decided that he could not continue with hosting this particular Naked Tuesday, but to contact him in the future with any other engagements. We hope to. We really liked working with Ken, but we understood and put the word out that we were looking.

This is when Gutterbrain Studios at Summer Street contacted us. They REALLY wanted to be the host. I was conflicted because they are an erotic photography studio. This violated two principles behind NT – 1) no photography and 2) this is not sexual in nature but more about purity of the body. After speaking with Craig Christie about our goals for this event he seemed on board. He would hide his camera and penis for the evening or at least take it into a private room.

We were sold, spoke to the right people and dove head first into the arrangements.
