Lion Stage Interactive Arts & Sciences Display

Lion Stage is all about artists sharing their work with a receptive and encouraging audience, and this year we are branching out into tangible arts as well as performance arts.

We are looking for artisans who want to share their work, with no documentation necessary and no judging. This is modeled on Athenaeum, which was a fantastic event held in Madrone last summer (and will be again this year).

Artisans will have a table to set up their display for general viewing in the morning. Artisans are encouraged to be at their displays between 1 and 3pm to talk to each other and network with anyone interested in the arts who wants to come and chat. 

If you’re interested in having a display, please email gro.hgirrit@icsnstrA.etaGsnoiL and tell me:
-What kinds of arts/sciences will you be showing?
-Do you require a wheelchair accessible display area?

Site Notes
