Performing artists include Kimberly Baker, Sheri Bancroft, Orixa Bowers, Burton Bridges,
Rebecca Rose Cochran, Marie Dennan, Emily Hefley, J Tbj Jones, Jenn King, Louisa Koeppel, Sarah Ledbetter, Kristen Osborne Lucas, Wayne Smith, Lauren Stallings, Erin D. H. Williams and along with musicians Misti Rae Holton and Kyle Statham, filmmakers Joel Rose and Laura Jean Hocking, and photographer Stephanie Wexler.
