5 days of adventurous art from all over the globe. 100% free to attend.
What began as an underground phenomenon 14 years ago, has grown into a city-wide celebration featuring artists from all over the world. And while the festival has grown, we have kept our independent spirit front and center in all that we do. For us, the act of putting on the festival is built on a deep belief in creating space for the unexpected, for disruption, for discovery, and experimentation. It’s also a powerful moment to connect, dream, and build community.
Artistically, the festival is rooted in liveness. The performances, the parties, the meals, the discussions, etc, leverage and celebrate the potential of the live situation. What does it mean to be in a space with other people and what kinds of things are only possible in this space? This feels especially needed at this moment in our country’s history. And so we invite you and your imaginations to join us. Let’s spend some time together (in person) thinking about the world and our moment in it.
The 2018 festival is completely free to attend, but to help plan your festival experience, reservations to most performances and events will be available. A small percentage of tickets for each event will be available at the door for walk-ups.
