The two weeks will feature workshops, collaborative design projects, panel discussions, live performances, films, and interdisciplinary investigations. Â This year’s format: Week One: A week of workshops, and a two-track weekend of eco-soma-regional research, & social experiments into CI. Week Two: Interdisciplinary investigations.
This year, the Festival will focus on potentiality – in this year of potential political change & community organizing, we invite this phenomenon into our interdisciplinary investigations.
