Stratford: SpringWorks cancels its 2020 festival

Friday, May 15, 2020

Hermione Presents and SpringWorks Festivals join the many artistic organizations, large and small around the world, as we announce our 2020 season programming will be moving to 2021. 

SpringWorks Festivals are about gathering. Artist creators come to share their works directly and in close connection with the audience. Our participatory events foster live and in-person experiences. 

SWF is taking this year as an opportunity, a gift of time, to actively envision the best version of what we can be in the future. We will connect with our community, artistic family, donors, sponsors and partners to share thoughts, and dreams. SWF will continue to foster partnerships and collaborations with the artistic community, local businesses, organizations in this region and across the country, to explore possibilities.

SWF will continue to support artistic expression and bring innovators’ work to your attention on our website and social platforms.

We will explore digital practices and ways to work with those pioneers who are forging new communication paths in this new virtual experience. 

Live artistic gatherings will fill a crucial need when we are able to meet again - ready to experience the magic of being in the presence of others.

Physical distancing may be required for some time.

With the guidance of experts, we will establish safe and healthy ways to re-engage physically when the circumstances allow.

Inspiration, hope, respite, and possibility will be our guides as we adapt and evolve.
