The LABA Festival is an annual event by LABA: House of Study, an inclusive beit midrash for
culture-makers at the 14th Street Y. This year the House of Study selected 10 artist fellows and
engaged them in the theme of BLUEPRINT, an investigation into the function of spaces and places in
ancient Jewish texts. The works presented in the Festival were created by the fellows in response to
the texts they studied together.
