Our regular programming began with our annual Fall Harvest Festival in 2011. The festival melds traditional crafts and a farmer’s market with cutting edge art installations, new media and performances in a country fair setting. In 2015, the Fall Harvest Festival was adopted as an official city festival of Kingsbury.
In the Fall of 2014, Habitable Spaces also received a grant from the Idea Fund to launch an interactive performance and art installation at the festival. The Trading Post exchanges farm goods for art. By examining the value of art and agricultural commodities in conjunction with each other, The Trading Post expands the vocabulary of art making. It becomes a project that embodies social exploration, performative realities, anthropological experimentation, and living installation sculpture.
