Basilica Hudson and CLMP (Community for Literary Magazines and Presses), present READ & FEED, a new festival for food and literature. This projected annual event brings together artisanal makers of food with artisanal makers of literature. This inaugural “mini-festival” will feature panel discussions bringing together writers, farmers and chefs, cooking and mixology demonstrations, a marathon reading of John Cage’s Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse), and a marketplace featuring more than twenty small press publishers and artisanal food makers, plus spectacular eats and drinks. Much of READ & FEED will be broadcast live on Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley and streamed online at wavefarm.org.
2016 SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT
Basilica is thrilled to announce its 2016 season, which will once again include a wide range of innovative, avant-garde live performance, music, film, literary, farm and community programs. We’ll kick off the season with the second annual 24-HOUR DRONE, and the addition of a Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market. Summer brings freaky favorites on Flag Day and the newly added Read & Feed, bringing together artisanal makers of food with artisanal makers of literature. In Fall, we’ll return with Basilica SoundScape, the Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market, and more very special events to be announced!
As always, we’re excited to be working with a far-reaching group of extraordinary artists, makers, and talented community members. We look forward to welcoming audiences from all over, whether they be from around the corner or from around the world. (more…)
