To Write Love on Her Arms and Electric Forest present Piece by Piece: A Pixel Mural, a brand-new community-building art installation on Main Street.
The Forest Family is invited to connect with one another and spend a few mindful moments painting a selection of “pixels” that make up the Mural. Piece by piece, pixel by pixel, we will create something beautiful, together.VIEW MORE INFO
Over the past few years on Main Street, To Write Love on Her Arms has hosted the Barrier Project. The Forest Family built a wall, painting onto it the words, symbols, and phrases that represented our internal barriers. At the end of the weekend, the wall was broken down piece by piece and distributed to attendees, offered as a token of our intentions for improvement, and a reminder that the walls in our lives are not permanent.
Now, as we look forward to Electric Forest 2023, instead of breaking down a wall piece by piece, we would like to build something together, piece by piece. It is time to start planting seeds of growth, to create together in harmony, and to dream of a more complete and connected future. Changing ourselves, our community, and our world can be daunting – we can easily be overwhelmed by the end goal before we even get started. How do we overcome this? We start small. With time and repetition. And most of all, we work together. Piece by piece we will build something beautiful.
TWHOLA is inviting us to spend some mindful moments contributing to this larger tapestry. At first, it will feel like our contributions are tiny, but we must trust in the growing process. By the end of the weekend, we will have built a beautiful Mural together.
Come out to Main Street and add to Piece by Piece, our community Pixel Mural. We can’t wait to see what we will create together.

Introducing the Electric Forest Michigan CAMP Project, where HQ seeks to support local projects that align with these various core values. In 2022, the program continues to support local music programs through the Oceana County Community Fund while also funding community arts & parks projects. HQ seeks to continue spreading The Forest ethos and uplifting Michigan’s local music, arts, and nature!show more
Electric Forest’s Music In Schools program has supported local music education since 2012. Each year, thousands of dollars are donated to help keep music part of the curriculum in Michigan public schools.
By donating money and instruments to local school music programs, Electric Forest is bridging the gap between diminishing school budgets and music program resource needs. Since its inception in 2012, Electric Forest’s Music in Schools program has donated six figures to local schools to enhance the resources available to their music departments. The Music In Schools program also offers hands-on experiences to music students, including performance opportunities at the festival, as well as on-site mentorship opportunities where students interested in music production “shadow” Electric Forest professionals during the event.
After all, Electric Forest’s home should be a place of musical discovery year-round!
