What started in 2016 as an annual Artisan nine day event held during Yankee Homecoming in Newburyport, MA, has now become a movement.
Our Mission Statement: The Artisans Revival is more than just an arts and crafts 'fair'. It is a movement to reconnect the spirit, soul, and lifestyle of the 'true working artist' to that of the community, its culture, and history. It is a significant part of the foundation for a 'Cultural District' built on local, co-creative small business, sustainable economics, and ecology.
The following is the story of the birth of this modern day 'revival of the arts' in Newburyport.
