Coming Soon: KPCC is looking forward to being a part of the 2014 AxS Festival by hosting a variety of events at our Crawford Family Forum.
AxS is a two-week city-wide festival that explores the nexus of science and the arts. More details will become available soon, but programs will include an installment of NEXT: People | Science | Tomorrow; Planetary Radio Live; and a Community Cinema screening of “MAKERS: Women in Space.” Watch for more information at kpcc.org/forum.

AxS FESTIVAL 2014 | CURIOSITY
TWO WEEKS OF ART, DANCE, MUSIC, THEATER, PERFORMANCE and PROVOCATIVE CONVERSATION
AxS [ak-sis] is a two-week citywide festival produced by the Pasadena Arts Council that explores the nexus of artistic and scientific inquiry, promoting experimentation and cross-fertilization between these disciplines. It is our conviction that the interplay between human curiosity, scientific investigation and artistic risk-taking reflects a cultural zeitgeist that not only defines Pasadena as the City of Art and Science, but also illuminates the richness, diversity, and sheer innovation of human aspiration and achievement in the 21st century.
In fall 2014 Pasadena Arts Council will present the sixth AxS Festival, a proving ground where ideas, scientific theories and leading-edge technologies converge with artistic innovation across a multidisciplinary platform of architecture, new media, visual art, music, theater, educational programs and provocative conversation. The AxS Festival is a response to our contemporary cultural condition — a concentrated exploration designed to ignite and inspire the imagination of audiences and participants alike.
AxS Festival 2014 invites you to a two-week expedition — presented at partner venues throughout the city — across uncharted territory on the boundary between art and science.
AxS Festival is a collaboration of the Pasadena Arts Council and its presenting partners, produced by Pasadena Arts Council with major funding provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the City of Pasadena, and GuestHaus Residency.
