PlusFest: The Everything + Poetry Festival
“PlusFest: The Everything + Poetry Festival” is a one-day interdisciplinary art event that celebrates raw, innovative, and high-caliber artistic experience and will highlight spoken-word poetry. “PlusFest” aims to break down barriers around artistic disciplines so that new works can be created. The one-day festival will position spoken-word artists on a level playing field with local visual artists, videographers, DJ’s, musicians, and others to create new works and will showcase the work through a variety of innovative platforms. The goal of “PlusFest” is interactive impact; the festival will feature poetic photo booths, poetry slams, art installations, and speed writing buskers. By offering a wide variety of entry points, the festival will change the participant’s perception of poetry.
