**New Accesibility Information!! There are wheelchair accessible restrooms in the building, easily accessed and signs will be posted, or you can ask any volunteers or organizers for directions. The main entrance has a short set of stairs, and will require some walking from where there is available parking. There is a wheelchair accessible, mostly flat close-in entrance, however, in order to access this entrance you will have to contact someone at the festival to open the doors, as we’ve just been told that the entrance has to be closed at night for security reasons on that side of the building. We will post signs at this entrance with a phone number and have someone available to open the doors at all times. The entrance, which is on the N. Baltimore side of the building, is a flat, paved entrance that is accessed through a parking garage, if you have a car with DP plates or placard, or just need to use this entrance you may park in the garage. If you have any questions or would like help concerning accessibility please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plenty of Seating and couches for hang out times.

Submissions are due September 1st! This only means you have to submit your project to us, you still have until the day of your performance to get ready! You can submit here.
*Remember to look over the rules before you submit! We ask that submissions be new and collaborative! Find out more here.
This years festival is taking place in St. Johns at Cathedral Park Place. We have rented a 10,000+ sqft space -seriously, it’s huge and we’re gonna fill it up with your art, right?
The address is 6635 N Baltimore Portland, OR 97203
We will be getting more information to you all about transportation soon.
We are currently looking for volunteers for the festival, if you’re interested email email@example.com more info soon!
Here are photo’s of the room:
As you may know, Punk Start My Heart is a big part of Not Enough! and have decided after being intensely inspired by last years festival, to start a record label! We really feel like queer and feminist artists deserve to be put on vinyl records and get help with promotion and touring, and you can help by donating to our Kickstarter and helping us spread the word! Many of the rewards include vinyl records, so if you are thinking of buying anything by Fucking Lesbian Bitches, Forever, NO/HO/MO,or Fagatron consider donating! *Make sure to watch the video for the campaign as it contains footage from last year’s Not Enough!*
In the spirit of collaboration and to help those who might be seeking other artists, musicians, performers, writers, film-makers, etc. find their matching partner(s), the Not Enough organizers are throwing a queer art social known as the “Night of Possibilities.” Portland queers (and those who fall in the queer spectrum) are asked to come and meet others with similar interests and to have dialogue about possible projects or band-ideas.
There will also be an opportunity to submit your project into this year’s Not Enough! festival happening September 17th & 18th. The Night of Possibilities, like the festival, is all-inclusive, welcoming over everybody, all-ages, and accessible.
Bring your ideas! We want you to show us who you are!
come dance, drink, hang out & maybe even make a new friend!
DJ Sister, Sisters! (Lesbo DJ tag team: Yer Momm & Brodeya bring you the magic!)

You’ve asked for it, so here it is! We are in the midst of planning the second Not Enough! Last year was the most amazing, spontaneous, poignant and unforgettable experience I’ve ever had and I know this year could be even bigger and better.
Please people, start living your dreams. This is the chance for queers of all kinds, regardless of experience to do a project they’ve always wanted to do with the full support of their peers, community, friends, and strangers. Start a band/write a story/make a movie/paint a picture/whatever you can think of! -with a friend of course!
So, the rules are the same this year- all submissions must be collaborative and must be new. Basically, this means you need to create a new project that you intend to show off specifically at this festival, not something you’ve been working on for the last 2 years. That being said, there are no rules that you can’t present this work elsewhere. The idea is to breath some fresh air into the queer scene, and create an environment that is open and supportive of non-professionals or those who are just starting out making art. This is not to say you can’t be a profesional artist or musician and submit something, but we’d like to make room for people who may not see opportunities to participate in something like this. This is also a place to test out new ideas, even if something is in-process we want to see it.
This is a festival dedicated to supporting Queer/GLBTQxyz… individuals creating new collaborative art/musical/film projects.
