For this the talk, Richie will present the past, present and future projects of WildKind, and talk about process, ethos, and strategies that help inspire radical agency and creativity in individuals and the greater community. Richie is perhaps best known for two projects: Appetite Obscure and Immigracious. Richie cofounded Appetite Obscure, a dining collective where interactive meals and immersive art/food experiences created new human connections. In total, Appetite Obscure launched over thirty interactive experiences -- potlucks of immersive food-based experiences, curated dining events, and adventurous expeditions. Immigracious built on the connection between art, food, community, and emotion. Immigracious was an adventurous art-experience for immigrants to share stories and food, including historic sailboats, an island, and excellent culinary creations of the immigrants’ favorite foods. About Richie Rhombus Richie Rhombus is an artist and experience creator living in Oakland, California. Richie has created over 60 collective experiences and adventurous large events in the San Francisco Bay Area. Richie uses art to connect people's bodies to greater ideas in expressly new ways, building unique relationships with the social sensual and conceptual world. Richie was the co-founder of Appetite Obscure, a dining collective where interactive meals and immersive-art food experiences create new human connections. Through careful curation of art and concepts, Richie creates ephemeral phenomena, re-visioning larger physical spaces to inhabit the intimate spaces of our deeper emotions. Richie's independent art has been featured in several dozen galleries, exhibitions, and art museums across the world.

    Please join us on July 9th for an Adventure Design Group with Siobhan O'Loughlin, the creator and performer of Broken Bone Bathtub. Broken Bone Bathtub is an immersive theatre project taking place inside a bathtub, in an actual home.

The audience takes on the role of Siobhan’s close friends; not only listening but sharing in their experiences, and assisting the cast-clad artist in the actual ritual of taking a bath.
