Winter Intention 17 will run from December 30th 2015 until January 3rd 2016! The location is Camp Elphinstone!

Intention FUNraiser "Dionysia: Mysteries of Darkness" is happening Dec 12, click here!

Intention is a five-day, four-night community-run gathering where participants come together to dance, play, share, learn, perform, eat and have fun together.

Winter Intention consist of electronic music parties at night, and daytimes consist of workshops and collective knowledge-sharing, multi-genre live music jams, a tribal market, and shared meals provided as part of your admission costs.

Intention is organized entirely by volunteer ORGs who are members of the community. Performers and organizers are not paid, and all participants share their labour and talent out of love for the community.

Tickets will cost $260

Party Night tickets are $60 for 24hrs (including 3 meals)

Kids aged 6 to 14 get in for $130

KIds 5 years old and under can come in for free.

Unfortunately, because the facilities and meals are provided by the camp, we cannot make the costs any lower. We really need a number of people to pay the full price to make this possible.

However, we do provide an option for participants on a lower income to apply for a subsidy of up to $100. This subsidy is based on an honour system, and we ask that only those people who really cannot afford the full price ask for it.

That being said, we would all much rather you be there then that you not come, so if you need the subsidy, please don't hesitate to make use of it! That's what it's there for!



To Be Announced ASAP!  if you are interested in DJing or playing live music, please send a detailed email to party[at]intentiongathering[dot]org  


Intention evolved from the simple ritual of getting together to dance. It is a family event for connecting with old friends while making new ones. It is a healing place to shed the isolation and separation of modern urban life. It is a safe and supportive space for learning and creative risk-taking. Intention deepens our ability to cooperate and opens our hearts.

Intention is participant-driven. You can start getting involved now to share your personal gifts and learn from your peers. Out aim is to co-create a safe container for a rich creative exploration of music, art, and self-expression.

Please join the googlegroup - where most of the action will be – to connect with lead organizers and other participants. Only critical info will be announced on FB events.


We still need individuals to step into key organizing roles as well as people who would like to assist. Bring your curiosity and join us as we create something truly special.

We look forward to seeing you soon,
