LIVE ART FUSION
We’re bringing Art Fusion to DRAUMA Columbus 2016! Watch as local artists fuse their styles in a live, David Bowie-themed painting. David Bowie contributed to several charities and we would like to keep this alive as we auction off the piece. In this silent auction all proceeds will go to the charity of the highest bidders choice.
They will be set up on the patio so throughout the evening you can check out the artwork, watch the progression and place a bid to take home an amazing piece of artwork and support your favorite charity.
POP UP SHOPS
New in 2016! Introducing for the first time at DRAUMA, The DRAUMA Pop-Up Shop! This is a great opportunity for all designers and participants to share their merchandise and personal brands up close with the attendees. Located in the white room, the Pop-Up Shop will include a DRAUMA merch booth, as well as any promotional items from participating artists.
Visit the Live Art Fusion and have a dance party with DJ PUSH & Friends for nonstop outdoor entertainment.
With a more relaxing, lounge-type atmosphere, the white room will have activities including Bondage by Kevin, belly dancing by Mythic Moves, the DRAUMA Pop-Up Shops.
Please note: Due to privacy for participants of the fetish activities, there will be no personal photography allowed in the mezzanine of the white room.
PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT
An interactive game that everyone can participate in! Instructions will be given to partygoers on social media and in the DRAUMA Program. A list of items to capture in a photo and be posted on social media with corresponding hashtags will be provided in the program. Winners will be chosen from the completed hunt, and given prizes!
The amazing Craig Bortmas returns to provide a chance to get photos with all of your friends at DRAUMA. Located as usual at the end of the bar near the backstage exit, he will be helping us capture our DRAUMA 2016 memories throughout the night.
A glimpse into the journey through the Labyrinth, with hidden secrets and surprises. Hand crafted by Zowie Feral X and Kayleen Hayhurst, many of the unique components will be available for purchase via silent auction at the DRAUMA merch booth.
