Disorient is an art collective and it takes the hardest work you’ll ever love to bring to life the sound, visual, and performance art on the playa. To that end, DKitchen makes it an utmost priority to feed and nourish our crew and have planned meals for YOU. Your meals are included in your camp dues.
The DKitchen is open daily for individual camper use for snacks, lunch, and personal meal-prep, closes at 4pm for camp dinner prep. There will be no DKitchen Annex, the whole kitchen is for everyone’s use.
New this year!
- FarmToPlaya: Many ingredients were grown organically in my vegetable garden this year or locally sourced on Bainbridge Island where I now live.
Recycle Camp: Since we are SO CLOSE to Center Camp, we will be crushing cans, and have a designated bin to collect and shifts to transport. Compost Camp: We will be using mesh bags to dry out and a bin to collect appropriate food scraps/waste to deliver to Ideate, aka Compost Camp, which is also very closeby! Pornj aprons for everyone: All DKitchen helpers will be gifted a PORNJ apron. Guests? Can I invite someone to have a meal at camp? Yes! We will have a limited number of tokens for you to invite someone over. Ask any Kitchen lead for one.
