The Other Festival @ the Media Lab | April 20, 2013

Due to current circumstances in the Boston area, The Other Festival is postponed and will not take place on Saturday, April 20. New date will be announced as soon as possible.


Come join us for a brand new arts/design festival at the MIT Media Lab – The Other Festival – on Saturday, April 21 from 12 noon to 8:00 pm. It is all free and open to the public, and will highlight the Lab’s unique “antidiciplinary” culture with performances, installations, a fashion show, food, and “unclassifiable” experiences.

Media Lab faculty, students and staff have created more than 50 projects for The Other Festival, which range from an organically spun “Silk Pavillion,” to a towering interactive Kelp Forest, to boundary-breaking robots, to a live band that is simultaneously mixed into three independent musical streams.

Under the direction of Tod Machover (who led the FAST Festival in celebration of MIT’s 150th Anniversary in 2011), The Other Festival is expected to become a yearly event at the Media Lab. Come join us for the inaugural event on Saturday: we promise that your expectations will be defied, your senses delighted, and your imagination unleashed!
