Of the two partners, Houston Free Thinkers and Visionary Noise, this festival is our way to give back to the people of Houston and surrounding counties.
Before and after this festival, HFT and VN not only bring up issues of awareness, but also do benefit shows for local and national organizations such as, Food Not Bombs, Feal Good Foundation, Local Live Radio, etc, as well as highlight local acts and performers. We celebrate freedom as a unified whole, and we all believe that it comes in various forms; art, poetry, activism, music.
In addition, we have featured speakers of like groups such as The Free Your Mind Conference, The Anti Media, The DC Free Thinkers. We have been written about in The Houston Press many times, and have been promoted for on KPFT Houston. With art, we have had the pleasure of having Shanti Visual Art and Morphis Art, who has toured with Slightly Stoopid doing live paintings.
Past and present vendors have included Raw Tejas Soaps, The Houston Exchange Network, I Am Bitcoin/Yo Soy Bitcoin, Houston Stand Down, The Generators Playground, and countless merchants and artists.
We have a team of people brainstorming to make sure that this festival continures to remain unique, and free!
