2017, Full Disclosure Festival: RADICAL INTERCONNECTEDNESS
was a weekend long festival that took place on October 20 and 21, 2017 on the Town Common and in a variety of spaces all within walking distance in Downtown Amherst. Regional artists were commissioned to create work upon the theme of our inter-connection with one another and to the earth. Art included original dance, theater, sculpture, immersive theater, folk opera, music, spoken word, and a primordial web of connection built on the Common. Also, conversations with thought leaders who study the ways we are connected (ie physicists, social activists, etc.) were offered in nooks and crannies of local businesses. photos by sophie Carreras.
