 NWACC Spring Arts & Culture Festival

March 7 - 11, 2022

About: The NWACC Spring Arts and Culture Festival (SACF) is a multi-day, interdisciplinary festival that brings together artists, academics, intellectuals and other members of the NWA and NWACC community to reflect on an annual theme. The festival offers in-person, streaming and recorded events that are FREE and open to the public, unless otherwise noted on the schedule.

2022 Theme - Interdependence

This spring, SACF will explore the theme of interdependence. We do not exist in a vacuum. Every action we take, no matter how small, leaves an imprint on us, our community, and our world. Essentially, every system within and outside of us impacts or relies on something or someone else, which raises questions. Do we ever truly stand alone? What influence do we have on each other and on the broader world? Join us in exploring the connections that reveal cultural, economic, social, scientific, political and artistic interdependence.

 Screen-Free Family Night @ BPL

Children (and their caregivers!) are encouraged to turn off their phones, tablets, and other devices for a night of low-tech fun and meaningful connection. Play a board game, create some art, or snuggle up in a reading nook, all without the distraction of a screen! Drop in at Bentonville Public Library, located at 405 South Main Street, for screen-free fun. Despite living in an increasingly connected world, it seems that people are becoming more and more disconnected. By turning off their screens, we hope that friends, families, and neighbors will learn more about each other, form and/or deepen relationships, and make lasting memories.

  • Tuesday, 3/8: 5pm - 7pm Drop-in

A partnership with NorthWest Arkansas Community College
