NET Hosts MicroFest USA in Honolulu

Posted: Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 at 5:17 pm in Field News, Opportunities

National Summit and Learning Exchange, June 13-18, 2013

Sunrise and sunset performances, graffiti artists, stories of radical arts-based political action – the MicroFest is a journey across the island of Oahu. Beginning in Honolulu, the Network of Ensemble Theaters (NET) will explore this urban environment, bridging the local and national through performances and conversations, ending with a group retreat to the rural North Shore for reflection and sharing.

This National Summit & Learning Exchange is the culmination of the MicroFest USA series, asking: “How does art impact your community?” and bringing together local and national participants to share success stories, challenges, inspirations, and questions about art-based community development. We invite you to be a part of this national conversation about art-based community development. Read some of the case studies and reflections of the three MicroFests here (http://www.ensembletheaters.net/content/microfest-documentation-2012-2013)

Registration is currently open and includes five days of housing, most meals, local ground transportation, and programming. Travel subsidies are available for NET members – Yes, you can join NET now and apply for the subsidy! (http://www.ensembletheaters.net/content/rates-and-registration)
