6:30 p.m. Cocktails
7:00 p.m. Program & Dinner
We hear one thing over and over again from writers and artists at Yaddo: It’s harder than ever to maintain focus and fall into the imaginative space required to produce extraordinary work. Poets, novelists, nonfiction writers, composers, filmmakers, visual artists and performing artists alike have told us that now, more than ever, the sanctuary of Yaddo is essential to them. The power of art and literature to help us make sense of our world has never been more evident or more urgently in need of support. This May, at a series of private dinners and performances across the country, we’ll celebrate Yaddo’s role as a provider of space and support for thousands of creative talents. Please join us.
