WHAT: Dwellings Arts Festival
WHERE: The Northampton Center For the Arts, 33 Hawley St Northampton, MA.
WHEN: THIS Saturday, October 12th from 1PM-11PM.
Dwellings is an organization and event celebrating interdisciplinary artwork and performances with a focus on community engagement and growth, founded with values of ethics and equal representation at the forefront. Our goal is to create greater equity of opportunities and access to resources and community support for artists from underrepresented groups. We also believe that raising awareness around issues that affect artists, such as union representation, fair pay, ethical artist/venue relationships, and safe venue practices will make our local art and music scene a safer and more supportive space for all artists and arts appreciators.
