5th Annual State of the Nation Art and Performance Festival.

State of the Nation is an annual multidisciplinary arts festival and bi-monthly series that brings together student, emerging, and professional performing and visual artists from across the United States who are committed to addressing social, political, and economic issues facing the Gulf South.  Co-Produced in New Orleans, LA and Jackson, MS annually since 2004, SON has presented the work of over two hundred and fifty dancers, musicians, theater artists, poets, painters, sculptors, filmmakers, activists and educators.   Attended by thousands, this festival provides an opportunity to showcase projects and participate in workshops.  At its best, it stands as a forum for democracy – a space for the free discussion of current affairs.

This year's festival will explore the intersection of art and activism through the presentation of original performance, music, film, workshops, visual art installations and site-specific events.  It will take place from March 18-23, 2009 at the 7th Ward Community Center, The Studio at Colton and various site-specific locations throughout New Orleans.
