In the interest of public health, the 2nd Annual Holy Bones Festival is no longer happening in the flesh.
Holy Bones is evolving to include a fully immersive creative community, including:
- A digital marketplace we're affectionally calling the Phantom Festival, where you can shop your favorite local vendors “in spirit." If you're ready to start selling, you can select the vendorship plan that's right for you.
- A collection of creative prompts and challenges called the Academy for Creative Souls, designed for you to play along on your own terms, from your own personal quarantine. Get started with our orientation study.
- A philanthropic undertaking called FundRaise the Dead, where local artists donate their work to a one-of-a-kind auction. Proceeds benefit The YPSI, with an option for sponsors to choose to directly support the artists. Anyone can submit art and get involved, want to see how?
- You tell us! We want to create a fun, positive, interactive experience for Ypsilantians and beyond. What would you like to see? Contact us to share your idea.
