Immerse yourself in CRAVE! You’re invited to participate in a non-stop weekend celebration of creativity in all its forms – and you can reach out and grab whatever you want, whenever you want it.
Music, dance, theater, painting, poetry, sculpture, film, you name it, will be everywhere you turn, and you’ll be able to help create the things happening all around you.
Find your voice! Jump on and off roaming Arts Buses to sample in-your-face productions that invite you to watch listen, or even participate, all along the Connective Corridor! Join a jam, co-write a poem, paint a streetscape, choose the ending of a play, decorate a mural, talk to Abe Lincoln or Bill Shakespeare, perform in a flash mob, create your character with make-up and costumes, fly like Peter Pan, commission songwriting to go, tweet from your seats to create improv skits, and much more.
Experience surprise performances in unexpected places as you stroll, eat, walk and ride through Syracuse to watch, listen and discover the arts everywhere you turn – on the street, in and around our theaters, clubs, cafes, museums, restaurants, plazas, buses, alleyways, stores and in the “Happening” C-RAVE finale!
