NEPO House

September 8, 2012

Believe it or not, we are doing it again! NEPO 5k DON'T RUN will be hoping, skipping, crawling, jaunting, hobbling, trekking, stumbling, trotting, moonwalking, un-running and no-running back in 2012!

NEPO House is proud to present the second iteration of NEPO 5k Don't Run. Curators Klara Glosova, Sierra Stinson and Zack Bent have invited a profusion of Seattle artists to create projects for an (almost) 5 kilometer route leading through diverse urban environments. In a true NEPO fashion (we like to do things backwards) this year's Don't Run is reversed, shortened and almost entirely downhill! On September 8th, starting at NEPO House on Beacon Hill and finishing in front of Kobe Terrace Gardens in the International District, participants will encounter city streets populated with artwork, installations and performing artists. Finish-line show MCed by Jake Stratton will feature live music by Bavarian Village Band, multimedia show by Airport, DJ Never Leaves, performance by Seattle Butoh Festival, DAIPANbutoh dancers, storefront video installations, LxWxH pop-up store, food trucks and beer garden. Expect the unexpected!
