We're currently living in a time where resistance seems to be part of our everyday life. The act of swimming against the current - not for futile reasons but to spark change and awareness. For our 14th annual festival, we will be exploring the act of resisting from both a micro and macro perspective. How does one withstand opposing forces that sometimes feel overwhelming? How does resistance measure a material's ability to resist the flow of electrons through it? How do organisms resist harmful influences such as disease, toxic agents or infection? How do we all express our resistance, either internally or externally?
