In the commitment of inclusiveness and collectivity, the festival was created through a horizontal and decentralized curation. Artists from Truth or Consequences and around the world were given an open invitation to design their participation: “if you could make, or show, or create something deeply unconstrained what would you do? How can you use this festival to create something you’ve been dreaming of?” What resulted were new and old works, experiences and presentions, that spanned across conventional categories including films, installations, aerial performances, knife forging, poetry, collective dinners, public forums, audio interviews, photography, sculpture, music, and much more. Though vastly different in form and content, each was bound together by a commitment to self-expression, community, and the power of art to bring us together and create conversations that have the ability to change ourselves and the world we live in.
