Get ready! This boundary-blurring, community-involving, city-loving art event is slowly sauntering into existence once again!

On Saturday September 7th 2013 NEPO House is proud to present the third iteration of NEPO 5k DON'T RUN, a 5km art walk from the International District to Beacon Hill. The route will be packed with over 60 projects: visual art and sculptural installations, interactive artworks, poetry readings, video projections, sound installations, music and theatrical performances. Artists will install and perform along the ordinary city streets, in garages, a pagoda, meadows along a bike path, below a bridge and under a freeway overpass. Every aspect of this walk is a creative happening - a visual and symbolic experiment in creating a more enjoyable world through active participation.
