On Saturday, June 4 2016, Enough Pie hosted our fourth annual AWAKENING in the backyard of the high rise building Joseph Floyd Manor in the Upper Peninsula.

The community enjoyed indigo-inspired art, storytelling, dance, music from Ohm Radio 96.3FM, food from Roti Rolls + One80 Place, and weave the fence with Artist & Craftsman. As the sun set, we screened an outdoor documentary film — Blue Alchemy — with the filmmaker Mary Lance in attendance.

This year, AWAKENING, a part of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, also celebrates the launch of Enough Pie’s most collaborative project to date: INDIGO VAT SHACK, a hands-on indigo dye vat where guests are invited to explore the history, culture, science and arts of indigo.
