Re-Fest: Re-Circulation

How might we create more organic, empowered, safe, just, or empathic circulatory systems?

Re-Fest 2021’s theme, “Re-Circulation” uses the literal and metaphoric phenomenon of circulation to explore strategies for exchanging art, ideas, and information in unexpected ways, fostering interconnection and creativity.

In an era when our technological platforms are susceptible to manipulation and personal devices can lead to feelings of isolation, Re-Fest brings people together to pose questions and challenge the status quo. Who controls the pathways, nodes, and points of access? How might we create more organic, empowered, safe, just, or empathic circulatory systems? What new tools, models, and practices might come forward?
