This year at the Goose you will find community artists and artwork all around the grounds! From painters and photographers to sculptors and makers, artists will be interacting, responding to and inviting us to participate in a variety of ways. Each artist station will have a description and more info on how to engage! Our hope is that the artist in you will be inspired to bring art/make art/co-create at the Goose as well! If you would like to be a community artist or have questions find Shawna Bowman in the Studio or email her at email@example.com!

The Village is centrally located on Main Street and anchored by The Café, a diverse venue with music all day long – and some late night activities. There’s a beer vendor right next door and a few food trucks. Come, sit, enjoy a conversation or move in a little closer to enjoy some great music.
This is also where you’ll find the Meetup Board where you post an invitation with your area of interest along with a time and place to meet.
The Village is underwritten by Bread for the World.
Convo Hall, located at the north end of the plateau, is designed to promote intimate programming spaces where people gather around a topic. It’s a large tent set with twelve tables.
Each convo is limited to ten people (including facilitator), is 50 minutes in length, and is usually scheduled in two separate time slots – one on Friday and one on Saturday – so everyone gets two opportunities to present. Repeating allows larger impact and makes it possible for word of mouth to create a buzz about the upcoming repeat presentations.
We’re excited about how this can bring people together in small groups with genuine interaction and conversation around specific topics – and how it serves as a way to get to know others in the community.
