The theme for Re–Fest 2023 is Re-New, which critically examines our culture’s obsession with newness. How can we prioritize ancestral knowledge, healing practices, and forgotten technologies in order to renew our relationship with creation and progress?
Festival sites in NYC and LA will feature exhibitions, performances, and conversations that will stream into our virtual venue, converging disparate disciplines, perspectives, and approaches in an effort to spark renewal.
