During that time, the city of Eugene's Cultural Services collaborated with Harmonic Laboratory to help curate and produce the event. The festival was rebranded in 2016 as the Integrated Arts Platform

Festival. This year's theme is "Marginalized Voices."

The festival is supported by the city of Eugene Cultural Services, UO Office of Academic Affairs, UO Division of Equity and Inclusion, and Oregon Humanities Center's Endowment for Public Outreach in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities. Free. EMU is at 1395 University St. Website:
