It’s time for another Ardent Heavy Industries/Interpretive Arson Open Shop! We’re inviting everyone to stop by our (newly cleaned and reorganized) shop space at NIMBY to take shop tours, hear about our upcoming projects and events, and play with some fire. We’ll also have a little food, but mostly some hot coals to cook whatever you want bring. This time we’ve got a tentative schedule:

  • 7:00 – Coals are hot and doors are open!
  • 7:30 – Shop tour #1 begins
  • 8:00-8:15 – Syzygryd (aka that thing we’re building for That Thing In The Desert)
  • 8:15-8:30 – Robots with Sam and Morley
  • 8:30-8:45 – What AHI/IA is up to this year & how you can get involved with Ardent
  • 8:45-? – Fire toys outside, hang out and chat about projects, etc
  • 9:00- Shop Tour #2 begins

Swing by and enjoy some friends, food, and fire.

NIMBY is an essential part of many of our lives. It houses several artists, including Interpretive Arson /Ardent Heavy Industries. Dance Dance Immolation and 2pir are housed here and it’s also where we build everything, including our upcoming projects for this year as well as several other smaller scale projects. Help us save this space so that art in Oakland can continue.
