About ArtBeat

ArtBeat is one of the area’s largest and most innovative arts festivals, with over a dozen bands, dance troupes, 75 craft vendors, food and hatch-themed activities.

We like to think of Somerville as a giant incubator, one in which ideas, dreams and art percolate and ultimately, hatch. And so, this year’s ArtBeat theme is “hatch,” a celebration of our city’s creative endeavors. “Hatch” evokes many things: chirping chicks breaking out of their shells, emerging creative projects and scientific break-throughs, and indie businesses busting onto the scene. Let’s also consider “hatch” as a noun, as an opening or compartment in a ship, car or building—places where things can be stashed away from the public eye. TV fans might recall the mysterious “hatch” on Lost, a buried steel entryway to the subterranean Dharma Initiative Station. We look forward to your creative interpretations of this year’s ArtBeat theme. Dancers might explore emerging from a confined space; tech-savvy artists might share newly hatched innovations in robotics; an artist collective might showcase work that has been created collectively, within an incubator; pet lovers might organize a photography exhibit of newly hatched critters or stage a puppy parade. It’s time to bust out of our shells and let our ideas… hatch.
