CHUO 89.1 FM Presents: Festivals 101
By Liz Anthonisen, CHUO 89.1 FM
Festivals 101 is a podcast all about --you guessed it-- festivals! In each episode, Liz takes a look at a different local festival and digs a little deeper into what exactly they do. Why are they here? What are their goals? And most importantly, how are they impacting the lives of their patrons, year after year? Every festival has a story behind it, whether it be about creating a space for BIPOC artists to share their work or recognizing the importance of providing accessible theatre to the community. Even through this time of crisis, organizers and artists are working to bring the festival experience to you safely, and it would truly be a shame to let their work go unnoticed. In this series, you can hear all about the stories and the people who’ve dedicated hundreds of hours to bringing their patrons amazing experiences while promoting inclusivity, acceptance, accessibility and much more.
