After an Open Call for Performance Ideas received 116 applications from neighbors aged 575, a jury of Milwaukee artists and community leaders selected the Top 20 ideas through a public audition held on February 22, 2014. Each performer was awarded $500 for their winning idea and up to $1000 to produce their piece. These performances will take place over the course of the summer, organized into festivals on the last Saturdays of June, July, and August.
Each festival day will run from 11am to 6pm occupying a new public space defined by upcycled materials including 5 shipping containers. Performances will take place on 3 stages as well as in ICAN2 LABS alongside a Marketplace of food trucks, vendors, and information booths.
