The Nose Live From The International Festival Of Arts And Ideas And Pancakes And Pumpkins

Jun 23, 2017

"What do festivals do?"

Whether it's a film festival or Edinburgh or the Venice Biennale or New Haven, we wonder what happens when you get a lot of creative stuff in one place.

Is there synergy? Do you get a sense of where the arts are heading? Is there an aggregate effect or just a lot of smaller discrete events?

This hour, we broadcast live from The Study at Yale.


  • Christopher Arnott - Writes about theater for the Hartford Courant
  • Lucy Gellman - A reporter for the New Haven Independent and host of WNHH radio's Kitchen Sync
  • Chad Herzog - Director of programming for the International Festival of Arts and Ideas (and Pancakes and Pumpkins)
