In conjunction with the conference, Peacock Visual Arts is organizing their second TIPA (This is Performance Art) performance art festival. The conference and the festival have been organized so that the two events compliment one another, so that those interested can attend both events. TIPA performances will take place in the evenings and afternoons, following the conference. Venues will vary. The schedule for TIPA is posted below the conference schedule.
