BY AYELEN LIBERONA, creative director
In a time of increasing inequality, food injustice and environmental devastation, telling stories of destruction is important, but only telling those stories is a grave mistake. Instead, I invite us to conjure our collective social imagination by converging consciousness raising artists and willing audiences to conspire with land, plants and animals so we may manifest livable futures.
Inspired by Glencolton Farms, Symphony in the Barn festival has become a thriving opportunity for music, art and culture to provoke imaginaries that attune us to the sentience of our world. Together we will co-create multi-species, multi-sensory experiences that generate new stories about lands, bodies and community as places of rousing transformation.
