Selected by Open Call
Organized by Gina Reichert/ Power House Productions 

A working group session to introduce the concept of The Commons and how it has been applied to various projects in the past. David Bollier (UMass Amherst), Matthew Glassman (Double Edge Theatre), and Nick Slie (Mondo Bizzarro) will lead participants through a framing and focus exercise to center the discussion on the role of the artist to cultivate a collective imagination. Participants will share different approaches and narratives in response to this conversation and develop an approach moving forward.
