The Somerville Arts Council enjoys bringing people together. We understand the importance of continuing to social distance and not gather. The weather is getting cooler and the nights a bit darker, so we have brought back the Home Alone Arts Series ! We want to stay connected and continue to support artists as much as we can.
The Home Alone Art Series (HAAS) is a series of art related performances, presentations, artist talks, interviews, etc. Tell us more of what you want! The performances represent a variety of genres, including: Music, Visual Arts, Performance, Writing, Theater, Dance and Multidisciplinary art forms. Depending on the presentation or performance, this program will be livestreamed through Facebook or we will also be providing Zoom links for interactive workshops. Stay updated by RSVP-ing to our Facebook events, Follow us: SomervilleArts
