Every year as the summer rolls in, we start getting excited about October. For the month of October, we bring together a troupe of local and visiting artists to work together in our play reading, workshop, performance, and special event series. We host premiere readings of new works; offer skill-development workshops; present workshop performances; facilitate panel discussions; create pop-up community hubs.

This year, we are working together once more to provide challenging programming, unique opportunities, and creative spaces. The Live-In Festival seeks to remain an affordable platform for professional development and creative exploration.

We invite you to be part of the process, join us on our amazing art journey, and build at least some of your life around the Live-In Festival 2016.

  3. Definitely not too much time on my hands… perhaps a creative commitment to livin!
