Explore “Power' at the Spirit and Place Festival

The annual Spirit and Place Festival takes place November 3 through 12 with a theme of “power’ being explored and celebrated in various locations around Indianapolis.

The festival is known as a place to discover new ideas and concepts where the inner artist, creator, or philosopher can come out to play. Events will explore how power relates to race, imagination, the intersection of art and science, religious history, neighborhoods, and more.

A signature event of the festival is the 22nd annual Public Conversation: Reflections on Race, which will occur from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on November 12 at the Basile Theater in the Indiana History Center. The event includes dramatic readings with the Indiana Historical Society’s Museum Theater Program, historical documents, music and interactive opportunities.

The Public Conversation is a historical event that publically addressed taboo topics, which first occurred in 1996 with Kurt Vonnegut, John Updike and Dan Wakefield when they explored the relationship between “spirit” and “place.”

Other events will include the exhibit Homeless Voices from November 4 to11 at the Tube Factory art space, Words Matter! Writing for Healing, Action, & Change on November 10th at Indy First Friends Meeting, Embodied Power: Breath, Voice, & Yoga at the Athenaeum on Sunday 12th, and Working Together to Undo Racism on November 6th at the Tube Factory Art space.

The festival’s opening night kickoff event is the Superhero’s Bash which is free, at the Harrison Center for the Arts. It is a family-friendly event to celebrate all superheroes, including the superheroes in the local community. Attendees are invited to come in costumes, and there will be games and mask making.

Admission to “Public Conversation” is free. RSVP is required. Location: 450 W. Ohio St., Indianapolis. For information on individual event dates of the Spirit and Place Festival, visit the events calendar online at SpiritAndPlace.org.
