Paper Jazz: A Poster Showcase!

Clocktower presents Paper Jazz! A Poster Showcase!

"What do we do with all this paper? What do we do with these skills? Are college degrees and bills archival? Are we unplanned obsolescence? How many more can fit in the niche? We're all tacked on this wall together, and we're gonna make this composition work." 


Paper Jazz believes in creating a sustainable fest that does not gut artists with table fees. We are able to not charge artists through the communal infrastructure at the Silent Barn that has been built up and cultivated through years of collective work. We also don’t believe in charging attendees. Our fest is volunteer run and has very few fees, these fees are covered by asking our exhibitors for an optional small donation based on what they made. Anything made above our fees goes to compensate our poster designers and to Silent Barn Public Art and/or Outreach projects.
