Cost[edit | edit source]

This is a free event. Donations are appreciated to help support the OXYTOCIN project and Noisebridge.

The OXYTOCIN project was born from our shared belief in the importance of physical and emotional intimacy, coupled with a sense that finding it is sometimes harder than it ought to be. When people connect inside of OXYTOCIN, it gently comes to life, tuning the environment to the people inside. The structure rewards the connection by evoking sensation (auditory, visual, and somatosensory); enhancing but not distracting from the authentic human connection. It is OXYTOCIN's first time on playa, and your donations is greatly appreciated to make it happen.

Noisebridge is solely supported by individual donations by its users. You can donate through PayPal on our site or in the donation bins at the front of the space. If you use Noisebridge regularly, set up a regular donation. A $10-$40 monthly subscription is a great way to ensure Noisebridge stays around. You can also become a member, which means you can take part in decisions about Noisebridge -- but you don't have to be one to use our space.

Covid Policy[edit | edit source]
