The first annual 02F Festival is kicking off March 2nd in the Creamery District. This festival’s aim is to celebrate creative women in our community. The theme of this year’s festival is Zero to Fierce: an opportunity to discover, inspire, and create.

The 02F Festival presents a week of fun, exciting, and provocative activities to inspire our community to work, talk, and play together. It’ll kick off with a revival of the hit production Women of the Northwest followed by a convivial symposium, a vocal improvisation workshop with renown singer Rhiannon, a wild cabaret, an interactive art installation, inspiring panel discussions on health, art, business, activism, and more.

Several roadmaps are offered to guide participants through this one of a kind festival. They proceed along a chosen route following events that speak to Health and Self Care, Home and Family, the Environment, and Activism — a roadmap from Zero to Fierce. From March 2nd-11th, over 50 events will be happening

There will also be workshops and panels on writing, art, yoga, sexuality and motherhood and others.

A revival of the 2013 hit production Women of the Northwest is an investigation into the rich history of women in Humboldt county. Featuring original live music the production is a montage of women’s lives behind the redwood curtain. From female emancipation to prostitution,

and motherhood to adventure, Women of the Northwest explores the choices and challenges of women a hundred years now past. The tales range from comedic to gripping and gritty, as the experiences of female Olympians, immigrants, cross-dressers, bohemians, mothers and schoolmarms are revealed.

The Zero To Fierce Festival is presented by Playhouse Arts. The mission of Playhouse Arts is to use live performance as a tool to build a community that is inspired and empowered to work together for the common good. Arcata Playhouse, The Creamery and Four On The Floor are all associated with Playhouse Arts.street-mural
