How to Kiss on a Plane
The festival of booths is taking place at James Madison University’s campus in Madison, Wisconsin.
It’s the first major conference of its kind and the third time this year the university has hosted the event.
The festival features the largest booth of its sort at the college, with booths stretching to the ceiling, including one with a roomful of students.
While it’s hard to know what the event’s main goal is, organizers say they’re hoping to inspire people to get together to express themselves.
The conference also aims to get people talking about the importance of art and creativity in the digital age.
The booths are part of a series of installations that will be showcased in the coming months.
In one booth, a woman sits on a chair that reads “Art Is Not Enough.”
The other one has a poster that reads, “Your Art Matters.”
The posters are from artist and social entrepreneur Neda Khadri, who was born and raised in India and now lives in the United States.
The booth was originally created to promote her new book, “We Are Not What We Look Like.”
Khadris book focuses on how women can use their art to empower others.
She says her hope is that the event will inspire people of all ages to make more creative choices.
“The world needs to be more creative,” she says.
“It’s just a matter of us making better choices for ourselves.”
She believes there are more opportunities for women to become better artists in the world than in their own country.
