Join us for the first gathering hosted by Fox Whitney and Moonyeka.
Indulge your desire to party, celebrate, and connect.

February’s full moon is the Snow Moon and the theme of this month’s NIGHTLIGHT.

ABOUT NIGHTLIGHT

NIGHTLIGHT is a late-night gathering inspired by full moon feelings and the need to come together when and how we can! Instigators Fox and Moonyeka invite a rotating group of featured artists to create an invitation/incantation for the digital realm that offers people a chance to indulge their desire to party, transmute, manifest, and dance hard. Instructions on how to engage during the event will be shared by artists beforehand. Artists will also offer party-goers a gift to mark each special occasion.
