a+s works on the farm aims to provide dance artists with an opportunity to challenge the creative process, supporting a re-envisioning of how dance can and should exist in our world. For one weekend every summer, a+s works opens the farm to artists to question, discuss, move, and wholeheartedly work, culminating in a comprehensive piece made within the span of the festival. on the farm also hopes to share serious, thoughtful, and challenging art with the community which is the homeland of this creative retreat. The artists provide free arts workshops for the families of Hornell, as well as an opportunity to perform their own creations, helping to foster the idea that innovative art making can happen anywhere, through so many different avenues, and for the benefit of all.
