We are currently collecting submissions for BOOM INTERSECTION. Click on the red links below to submit online.


BOOM INTERSECTION is the space in which art, culture and community collide. We’ll have free live music and performance art on our outdoor stage, and visual and performance art installations around the neighborhood. The Intersection will provide an anchor for the festival by creating a location where audience and community members can congregate in an outdoor living room with couches and a fire pit, find out more about BOOM, play in the children’s activity spaces, and participate in a free, outdoor family-friendly environment. The Intersection will include whatever you envision, submit and make it happen.

We are currently collecting submissions for BOOM INTERSECTION 2018. Submissions are open November 15th, 2017 - March 15th, 2018, notifications will be made on a rolling basis.
