    It is with great pride and excitement that we announce the inaugural LunART Festival 2018 in Madison, Wisconsin! Our vision for the festival is to empower women in the arts by fostering originality, honoring diversity, and strengthening equality.

    LunART Festival strives to cultivate a vibrant, safe space for women, unveiling our artistic leadership and creating the opportunity to put our hearts and souls into what we believe in.

    Throughout history, artists have created and used their works as a powerful way to comment on social issues. They have raised questions, challenged norms, and encouraged peopleto observe controversial subjects through a different lens. Gender issues are currently at the forefront of political and social discussions, and we want to support women across the globe as they navigate the gender imbalance in artistic fields.

    This three-day festival features a remarkable range of women, diverse and varied in their artistic vision, but with the shared passion and desire to make their voices heard! 

    Our 2018 Artist in Residence is award-winning composer Jenni Brandon. She will coach the LunART Festival “From Page to Stage: Emerging Composers Workshop,” offering master classes, lectures, and discussions about collaboration and career tools. 

    Other Festival highlights include:

    Community ties and individual involvement:
    Through collaborations and partnership with local Madison-area arts organizations such as Madison Museum of Contemporary Arts (MMoCA), First Unitarian Society and Madison Youth Choirs, we are celebrating women's originality, individuality, imagination, and strengthening community ties.
