The program features, from each city: 6 writers, 6 graphic designers, a musician, and a filmmaker. A host of Seattle chefs will provide hospitality. All artists are creating new work on the theme of "community/home/location." Town Hall Seattle will host events on November 12 and 13, with an art exhibit at Tether Design Gallery the month of November. In April, New Orleans ("NOLA") will return the favor by hosting the same artists in performance in the Big Easy.
Some of the marquee participants are songwriter and pianist Robin Holcomb (Seattle); cajun music forerunner Zachary Richard (NOLA); Seattle writers Molly Wizenberg, Megan Kelso, Riz Rollins, and Jonathan Evison; NOLA writers James Nolan, Dedra Johnson, and Asia Rainey; Seattle artists Jeff Kleinsmith and Jeffry Mitchell; NOLA artists Ness Higson and Daniela Marx; Seattle filmmaker Ben Kasulke, and NOLA filmmaking ensemble Court 13.
