Kinderland Arts & Activism Festival
This family-friendly festival for the public will bring together musicians, artists, and dancers, with activists and organizers for a celebration of art as an agent of peace. The objective of the festival is to unite those who want to make the world a better place, and to surround them with the music and art that is already doing it. There are two major components of the festival. The first will highlight music from around the world with a focus on progressive values, including jazz, folk, children's, klezmer, world, rock, and hip hop. The festival will also feature other forms of artistic expression including painting, drawing, sculpting, jewelry, weaving, drama, comedy, and dance. Artists will exhibit and sell their art, put on performances, share information about upcoming shows, and offer classes and workshops for adults and children. The second essential components of the festival are activism and social justice. It is our hope that providing the community with access to organizers in the nonprofit world will enable the event to produce agents for change, networking opportunities for change-makers, and the tools necessary to make a social impact. Nonprofit organizations and social justice communities will distribute information, host networking hours, offer organizing workshops for youth and adults, and make announcements during the festival. By embracing the crossroads of art and activism, we can encourage artists to use their works of art to better the world, and encourage creativity and beauty in social justice organizing. In addition to these two main components, local vendors will sell food and drinks, and the festival will be Zero-Waste in an effort to do our part to be environmentally sustainable and educate others about the benefits for our planet of recycling, reusing, and composting.
