New Cape-Wide Arts Festival to Debut in 2017

artspringHYANNIS – A Cape-wide arts festival set to make its debut in the spring of 2017, looks to explore the theme of “Freedom of Expression,” while engaging as many artists, organizations and communities as possible for participation.

The festival, ArtSpring Cape Cod, will run from April 27-May 7.

The idea for the festival was hatched from a collaboration between the Cotuit Center for the Arts and Cape Symphony, and the center’s Executive Director David Kuehn, the symphony’s Artistic Director and Coordinator Jung Ho Pak and Cape and Islands Theater Coalition Executive Director David Kaplan launched the initiative for the festival.

Arts and cultural leaders from across the Cape have joined to help plan the festival, and thanks to a grant from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, there is no cost for participants to add their event to the festival.

“What we wanted to do was come up with something that was easy to participate in and did not pull resources from the organizations that might want to participate,” Kuehn said.

Events can be small or large, as long as they adhere to the theme of the festival.

The event website——has a complete list of organizers, sponsors and events.
