From Artbeat Website:

ArtBeat is Somerville's annual multi-media street party! The festival showcases the City's diverse and vibrant arts communities and attracts ten thousand visitors to Davis Square. Presented by
the Somerville Arts Council (SAC) and Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone.

ArtBeat is now its 34th year and features an eclectic mix of music, dance, theater, food, performance and interactive activities.

More than 80 regional and local craft and fine art vendors, who create their own work, will be chosen to present for 7 hours on Saturday afternoon. Chance is a celebration of all things
unexpected, unplanned, fluky and fortuitous. We invite artists and community members to interpret this theme in a variety of ways.

Chance conjures many things: games, gambles, chance encounters and dada, an early 20th-century art movement that celebrated chance as opposed to reason or logic. Lets take a chance at ArtBeat this year and explore how things happen when we don't follow detailed plans and instead embrace serendipity.

Perhaps artists will create dada-inspired public artworks or interactive games involving chance, or dancers might explore movement that responds to an element of chance like a surprise shift in music. Comedians might plan an improv workshop and storytellers might explore themes of unexpected outcomes. We look forward to your creative interpretation of this theme!
