All video content will be edited and branded for the event by our own Kenney Delaney and will be embargoed until August 8 and remain available on the ArtsPartners website for months to come.

While we anticipate that there will additionally be a live-stream component of the festival - we are still working out the details of what that will entail. Stay tuned!

We will be hosting a ZOOM Kick-Off Party on June 8 from 4-5pm! This is a chance for us to give you an overview of the vision for this year's event and to answer any questions you may have.

The arts, creativity, and innovation matter more than ever! And more than ever our community needs to know that we are still here and available to offer inspiration, enjoyment, learning opportunities, and more.
