The Hay Qua!/That's Neaat Lineup

Monday, June 15, 2009

I got sent out the lineup for the That's Neaat/Hay Qua! mini-fest and it looks like a stellar group that's going to be there so definitely make sure to check it out if you can (but hurry because tickets are limited).

Here's the info from the release (thanks Donny):

New York is the stuff of dreams, and "Hay Qua!" celebrates this day and night. On Saturday, June 27th, the mini-fest is celebrating big with an impressive roster of passionate, creative thinkers/performers who have continuously pursued their dreams.

In inviting the renown presenters to share their ideas/insights, projects, and anecdotes, "Hay Qua!" hopes to inspire its audience to revisit their own dreams, to draw inspiration, to connect with one another, to wonder, to take away something new, to bring something forth. To witness the beauty of the human imagination at work.
