Festival Story:

The annual HOMEGROWN festival is a beacon placed on the edge of this ugly void in an attempt to draw together those who desire such a void to be filled. This festival and its presenters are part of a shift that has been taking place in the Boston area over the last number of years. This shift can be summed up as the resulting reaction, out of frustration, from Greater Boston’s residents over the lack of community mindedness and community engagement exhibited by those who reap the profits from local artists and musicians. Multitudes of blogs have sprouted up, new legitimate venues are opening, more illegitimate venues than ever are operating, new art galleries have opened, and several “show listing” sheets are circulated each month. The Boston area has changed for the better of the arts, and it would seem that it will continue evolving in this direction. And HOMEGROWN will be there growing amidst this overflowing spirit.
