Big Love

Presented by Big Love Network and Akron Peace Project and Akron League of Creative Interventionists at Summit Artspace, Akron OH

Mar 12 2016
Big Love

Big Love is a Transformational placemaking community festival in the heart of Akron led by artists, gardeners, musicians, community leaders and healing practitioners. This festival is a glimpse at the vibrant, thriving community Akron can become.

The name Big Love comes from the value of a greater community love, for a whole city in all its diversity. Big Love is a civically engaging arts festival that uses arts and culture to involve its participants in broader community building initiatives. Every aspect of this festival is interactive and participatory, from art installations, to vendor tables, to community-building workshops, to sustainability efforts, to cooking demos. What makes this festival unique is the hands-on atmosphere our community facilitates in creating a microcosm of Akron’s perfect city for a day. In years past with a crew of around 150 people (paid artists and volunteers), we have created spaces for a full days program of wellness, music, art, food and a wide variety of community engagement workshops. Big Love Fest’s strength comes from its inherently collaborative nature on everything from the music, art installations, workshops, and myriad of organizations finding new ways to create something together.
