festivals http://nhpr.org en Burning Man Of The Ocean: Seasteading's Ephemerisle Explored http://nhpr.org/post/burning-man-ocean-seasteadings-ephemerisle-explored <p>Every year, a small fleet of house- boats, yachts, and make-shift floating homes anchor together off the California coast for the Ephemerisle festival…it’s billed as a “floating celebration of community, learning, art, and seasteading.”&nbsp; The concept came from the <a href="http://www.seasteading.org/">Seasteading Institute</a>, a non-profit founded by a pair of highly placed tech entrepreneurs who are also outspoken libertarians. Seasteading supports the creation of floating city-states where people can experiment with self-governance and escape the rules and conventions of dry land. <strong>Atossa Abrahamian is </strong>a Brooklyn-based journalist and editor of “The New Inquiry.” She wrote about <a href="http://nplusonemag.com/seasteading">her visit to Ephemerisle </a>for N+1 magazine.</p><p> Mon, 22 Jul 2013 13:52:53 +0000 Virginia Prescott 31740 at http://nhpr.org Burning Man Of The Ocean: Seasteading's Ephemerisle Explored A Summer Arts Round-Up http://nhpr.org/post/summer-arts-round <p>There’s plenty to do this summer weekend in New England, including a few Word of Mouth favorites and others yet to be discovered. In the favorites category, <strong>Ethan Lipton</strong>, the man Time Out New York says is to lounge lizardry what Peter Sellers's Inspector Clouseau is to policing, performs “No Place To Go” at the <a href="https://hop.dartmouth.edu/Online/ethan_lipton">Hop at Dartmouth on July 20<sup>th</sup></a>.&nbsp; The Obie-Award winning theatrical song cycle is about the anxieties and driftlessness of being suddenly jobless. Ethan and his orchestra then travel to the <a href="http://www.themusichall.org/calendar/event/ethan_lipton_and_his_orchestra">Music Hall in Portsmouth </a>to play songs from their vast and repertoire of old-timey style swing and songs.</p><p> Thu, 18 Jul 2013 18:21:30 +0000 Virginia Prescott 31555 at http://nhpr.org A Summer Arts Round-Up NHPR Folk Calendar 6.30.2013 http://nhpr.org/post/nhpr-folk-calendar-6302013 <P align=center><STRONG>&nbsp;6.30.2013 Monday, July 1</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>&gt;&gt;&gt;Ten Strings &amp; a Goatskin (Irish &amp; Francophile) </STRONG>at the Colebrook Country Club ~ Colebrook, NH ~ 7pm ~ 603-237-9302, 603-246-8998 <U><A href="http://www.gnwca.org/">www.gnwca.org</A></U></P> <P></P> <P align=center><STRONG>Tuesday, July 2</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>&gt;&gt;&gt; Deoro (Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer) and Amber Rubarth </STRONG>at the Town Hall ~ Nelson, NH ~ 7:30pm ~ <U><A href="http://www.monadnockfolk.org/">www.monadnockfolk.org</A></U></P> <P align=center>&nbsp;</P> <P a Mon, 01 Jul 2013 00:06:46 +0000 Kate McNally 30431 at http://nhpr.org Comic-Con Comes to New Hampshire http://nhpr.org/post/comic-con-comes-new-hampshire <p><a href="http://www.comic-con.org/">Comic-Con</a> in San Diego lured more than a hundred thousand visitors earlier this month so it&rsquo;s no wonder that smaller Cons are popping up just about everywhere, not only because of comics&rsquo; continued bleed into pop culture through TV shows and blockbuster films, but because of the boost a Con can inject into a local economy, even <a href="http://www.granitecon.com/">Manchester, New Hampshire</a>.
