November 4 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

Emceed by local spoken word artist Manon Voice, celebrate the kick-off of the 26th annual Spirit & Place Festival with a newly commissioned piano piece by jazz pianist Christopher Pitts.

This year’s opening night virtual event invites you to learn about the CHANGE theme and the exciting array of events, exhibits, performances, films, and more happening from November 5-14. From the comfort of your home, sit back and enjoy live interviews, recorded performances, and more as we get ready for the 2021 Spirit & Place Festival!

Thanks to the Indiana Arts Commission, which receives support from the State of Indiana and the National Endowment for the Arts, this event will feature Manon Voice as emcee and a newly commission solo piano piece by Christopher Pitts.

Did you know Spirit & Place was the recipient of an Indiana Arts Commission grant last year that allowed us to commission a 25th anniversary poem by Manon Voice? Check out her work, A Brave Attempt.
