Each weekend invites the guests to realize manuals written by a diverse group of artists and cultural producers. The manuals are being produced collectively by the participants – you – without the oversight of the authors. Between working, eating, chilling, and hanging next to the night fire, the weekend event offers a unique cultural experience in the countryside of Illinois next to the gorgeous nature resort Starved Rock, where intimate relationships are being quickly weaved between strangers and friend.
