Description

Olivia will be performing in 4 showcases:

Thursday, January 23 - Alan Rowoth/Big Orange Tarp Room - 12:00 AM
Thursday, January 23 - Black Oak Artists Room FAI - 2:30 AM
Friday, January 24 - Face the Music - 11:10 PM
Saturday, January 25 - Access Film ORANGE Room - 10:30 PM

FAI’s 32nd conference heads to the vibrant port city of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz, beignets, Mardi Gras, and much more. A historical center of trade, the city has provided the setting for people to overcome language and cultural barriers by connecting through music and sharing cuisine.

In this setting, we will celebrate places of collaboration and the shaping of new shared identities, art, and forms of expression. Conscious programming will explore the themes of diversity, inclusion, immigration, intersection, and influence. Ultimately each person has a story (especially as folk artists) of who they are, where they are from, and how the places they live shape them.
