  • One thing I love about the small art town that is Brattleboro, is that there is so much expression of self everywhere. People are not afraid to be themselves, and pursue their dreams and goals. Freedom of expression is such a great thing to have, and I feel as though our whole community could accept almost anybody for who they are. There are so many different types of people walking around Brattleboro everyday, and so many interesting conversations that could be made.

    Also there is quite a lot of color in the town of Brattleboro, from its members and its building and sidewalks. You can turn a corner or walk into a parking lot and see a big mural of art painted for all to gaze and appreciate. Color is all around, and I love it that people are free to express themselves and wear all the colors they want. A big thing around here is dying hair, changing your ordinary self and trying something new.

    If you were to come to Brattleboro just one day, or even a week, you couldn't imagine all the talent hidden away and art that creeps around every corner. This town is full of talented folks and music, mainly because here it's cool to be in a band or be an artist, theres so much opportunity, and people are comfortable to pursue their passion. If you want to be a musician, try it out, and if you're good at it, then why don't you play a concert or two? Whether you're a freak, geek, hippie, skater, punk, runner or anything else you want to call yourself, you are welcome to Brattleboro, and to the land of talent, art, expression, and color.
