For me, the International Festival of Arts and Ideas has provided some of the most memorable performances I have ever seen and the variety of indoor and outdoor venues has been terrific as has been the variety of the performances themselves. I've been going to this event evry year since it started and enjoy it immensely. Of equal impact is the transformative nature of those two weeks in June when the City of New Haven is at its absolute best - brimming with visitors, artists, along with the local community and people of all ages and backgrounds enjoying this cornucopia of aural and visual delights. And it truly is not just Arts, but also Ideas, and last year I attended several remarkable Ideas events, most notably perhaps was the Community Poetry Project with Frank McCort, in conversation w/ Rose Styron - McCort simply entranced us and we would have gladly stayed for hours if he allowed us to do so (this Ideas event was SRO, as were others), and a dozen community members aged 14 to 80 were all remarkable reading their favorite poems and capturing us all in their varying expressive ways. New Haven truly felt like a community where the notion of ideas and openly sharing ideas was encouraged and embraced. I look forward to what the Fesival will offer up for 2010. They have set the bar high!
