May 1, 2022 - 37th annual Mayworks Festival

When: May 1st - 28th

As we organize this year's festival, we are moved and inspired by the networks of care celebrated through the work of the artists in our festival program. They celebrate how working people extend care to each other through generations, how this care is forged in resistance, and how it is shaped and remembered through story.

We're excited to return to in-person programming while continuing to offer digital art and online events.
