Phone Home Fest is an outdoor arts festival that affirms radical self care and creative courage. Phone Home Fest engages music, dance, poetry, hip hop performance, and healing arts, to create a space for our community and friends to practice love and liberation through creative celebration! Phone Home Fest showcases local and national artists, as well as health and wellness vendors to amplify themes explored in the Phone Home Art Installation, currently on display at the Carver Museum.
Phone Home creates a space for us to explore technologies, traditions, and tools that we use to care for ourselves, locate ancestral inspiration, honor our humanity and blaze pathways towards liberation. Phone Home is inspired by elements of the xigga afro-philo-cosmology*, a branch of knowledge and way of being that explores the truths of our origins, our presence, and our universe through a Black cultural lens.
