Jamaica Plain Porchfest is a seven year old festival taking place in August, 2021 (Date TBA!). The mission of JP Porchfest is to build community – across the divides of race, class, culture and immigrant status – through the power of the arts. Originally founded in 2014 by Mindy Fried and Marie Ghitman, this is Dunamis’ first year taking over the festival and we are thrilled to work with local community non-profit organizations and with artists working across multiple genres (e.g., music, dance, theater, spoken word, story-telling and circus arts), to create safety conscious, socially distanced events that bring together a diverse audience and foster community in a time where we are missing meaningful human connection.
Given the changing face of the pandemic, and the possibility of an in-person (or hybrid) event, we’re now figuring out a safe model for this JP Porchfest 2021. Please stay tuned for more information! Click here to look back on past years of Porchfest.
