⁠This weekend-long celebration is inspired by Susan Sontag’s prophetic essay “Notes on Camp’. The exhibition draws on the key concepts of unabashed enjoyment, the anti-serious, and stylization. You can expect the unexpected (and over 20 fresh works of art), as well as performances, food & drink, and fun things to do.⁠

While camp may seem like all fun and games, it has deep roots in marginalised communities. It is a tool for resistance used by queer and Black communities for generations. You can see our Reading List HERE to learn more about the definition of camp, as well as it's history.

We want to make sure we are all safe at #SPSummerCamp!

Here are the rules we are following:
- Max capacity of 50 people outside and 2 groups/ 3 people inside
- Masks will be mandatory inside the space and strongly encouraged outside
- Hand sanitizer will be everywhere and please use liberally!
- Respect other people’s space and stay bubbled-up

If you want to view the space by yourself due to COVID concerns, contact us and we will find a time that works.

You can RSVP to the event HERE. We are very excited to see you all at “camp” 🤠

Sweetpea Gallery respectfully acknowledges our location on the unceded territories of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples, now known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We seek to honour and uphold these ongoing relationships to the land and its stewards as we work, grow, and exercise our creativity on these territories.
