About The Event
Theorist Fest looks for experimental, courageous, crafted art that speaks to our role as artist citizens and connects us more deeply to ourselves, each other, and our environment. Our vision for 2019 is "Finding Fisterra" the edge of the known world. We look forward to experiencing what Fisterra means to you!
