WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
On the second Thursday of each month, artists from the Live Arts Festival artist residency program or a guest artist from the region talk about their work process and share their musings, imaginings and ideas that are the inspiration for what will eventually evolve into a new work.
They’ll be casual, intimate gatherings, so anything goes. The artists may perform segments of new work, tell stories about their un-traditional research, or just discuss what they’re currently imagining for their upcoming piece. Your questions and feedback for them throughout the event are warmly welcomed. In traditional Festival-style, free beer will be offered to all!
