American in Tent

Developed in 2021 during the lockdown we explored and developed spoken word performances created during the Edinburgh Festival – the biggest arts festival in the world.

Exploring the art of the possible with podcasting, virtual visual, and live streaming while honouring sustainability.

Here we present a virtual spoken word venue featuring a diverse and inclusive collective of artists and performers.

“The American in Tent is a collective of American artists expressing their take on the American narrative more personally while mitigating the carbon footprint of global festivals. We honor diversity and positive inclusion while freely exploring everything that ails us. We welcome cultural exchange and seek to be part of a greater global awareness. Even in the darkest of times, the artist’s voice must be heard.” Stephanie Vlahos

Whether attending a live theatre event or an art gallery, people value their engagement with art. It is the most succinct interface between what we experience in our world and how we process it.
