Lively Arts Events

Thursday, April 1, 2021

This great event will take place on Wednesday, April 28, in the Oak Grove.

Members of theater simple will also be at the first-ever Arts Walk, 12 to 4 p.m., Saturday, April 17, in beautiful downtown Indiana. Look for them and many other artists at the IRMC Park.

Caravan Chronicles: ReUnion is an interactive public art event set in and around a 1962 Airstream Safari. Audience members become part of the “family” at a semi-traditional (and highly idiosyncratic) reunion, contributing to the family lore with stories, memories, and haiku of their own.

An expansive and inclusive collection of both analog and digital events, culminating in this gleeful faux-family reunion, Caravan Chronicles will kick off with a documentary podcast series in winter 2021, encouraging connection in distancing times. Crafted in collaboration with the Lively Arts program, theater simple, IUP students, and Indiana participants, Caravan Chronicles will amuse and inspire “family” of all ages, shapes, and sizes, whether in person or online. So, come play a game, write haiku, and hang out—it’s time to add more stories to the family mythology.
