Power Of Truths

Arts & Eduction Festival

Part educational conference, part arts festival and part homage to the history of social activism in western Massachusetts, this two-day event brings community members together with the goal of working towards a more just future.

April 29-30, 2023

The Power of Truths Arts & Education Festival envisions a world where arts and education are utilized to bring about communities where justice and equity are the standards, not outliers. We center the practice that the arts and humanities are powerful tools to envision and create a more just world.

The 2nd Annual Power of Truths Arts & Education Festival builds on the previous year’s event with even more thought provoking and inspiring presenters, performances, talks, panels, and workshops with the purpose of inspiring educators and learners to focus on the intersections between arts and education as tools for power that build toward a just and equitable society.
