When: Sat., Oct. 13, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. 2018
It’s easy to know that the environment is worth protecting, but it’s hard to know how to do anything about it on a day-to-day basis. That’s where Life is Living Festival comes in. It’s not your typical music festival — although it has certainly had some stellar lineups. Instead, the 11th annual event is built to hold space for a larger conversation on social responsibility and environmental equity. People of color and other marginalized communities are all too often excluded from conversations on the environment and Life is Living Festival wants to change that through art. In addition to music on the main stage, this year’s festival features a dance battle hosted by Chinaka Hodge, a beauty zone, kids’ activities sponsored by the public library, and free breakfast from the People’s Kitchen Collective, as inspired by the Black Panthers. If you’re still up for more once the main events are over, check out the official after party at Spirithaus Gallery.
