OK, not too soon but …. big plans are afoot for a month long Newton Festival of the Arts, next May at locations all over the city. The festival will span everything from music, dance, visual arts, theater, film, to culinary arts and will feature a full calendar of events for the entire month of May 2015.
The Mayors Office of Cultural Affairs and Newton Community Pride are the umbrella organizations pulling it all together. They’re working with 40+ Newton arts organization so far and new ones continue to be added. If you’re involved with any Newton based arts group and want to take part, contact Linda Plaut ([email protected]) to be part of the festival.
Our brand new Newton Nomadic Theater just signed up this morning to throw a Nomad Story Slam at Gregorian Rugs in Lower Falls as part of the festival.
If you want to help get the Newton Festival of the Arts off the ground, go shop at Whole Foods today and 5% of your purchases will be donated to the festival.
It sounds like it should be one month long, art infused, Newton party.
