YES! A Small Word with a Massive Impact

In 2015 over 100 of the region’s diverse and dynamic arts and cultural organizations will unite and use the power of YES to accomplish something greater than any one organization could do on its own.

This year-long festival is YES! Fest — A Year of Environment and Sustainability. YES! Fest will provide a platform to explore the important topic of the environment and sustainability. Through collaborative efforts as well as individual organizational programming, YES! Fest will connect the arts, culture and the environment in an innovative way that will engage dialogue and thoughtful conversation throughout our community.
