Threads All Arts Festival
THREADS ALL ARTS FESTIVAL : AUGUST 25-27, 2017 : ANN ARBOR DISTILLLING CO.
Threads is a chance to create something together.
To make something happen.
For you, for us.
For strangers and for friends.
Onstage. Backstage. In rooms. In parking lots.
We think about how it will feel when you walk in the space.
And how it will feel when you’ve been there for seven hours.
And what you might remember four months after you’ve left.
We aim to make an impact with what impacts us:
The art of our community.
Togetherness. Intimacy. Vulnerability.
We believe this is the best way to create a platform
For shared happiness.
One that you can stand on
Regardless of your age
There is room for you.
And we are so happy
In September 2015, two best friends (Nicole and Sam) realized they really wanted to find a way to share, with many people, all the amazing art they saw coming out of their friends and neighbors. The frequency of this particular conversation increased greatly as the number of leaves on trees decreased. Winter settled in, the team expanded (Karen, Lang, Meri, and Peter), and they were awarded a grant that made all of this possible. Four months later, April 1+2, 2016 marked the two-day all arts festival held at the Yellowbarn in Ann Arbor, MI called Threads.
This is now the second year of the festival. Our new home is the Ann Arbor Distilling Company and the dates are August 25-27, 2017. We cannot wait to share this weekend with you.
