Our official slogan is Art Sustains Us! This year the festival will feature some of the regions best live bands performing edgy, original music: Aldous Collins, Chachi Carvalho, Will Dailey, Shea Rose, Wheat, The Quins, Hayley Thompson-King,Christina Alexander, Grace Morrison, Sadie Vada, The Parkington Sisters, Ada, Jenna Lotti, Christa Gniadek, Emily Grogan, Shane Tyler, The Wolff Sisters, Bruvs, and Carlston Wood and the Wood Street Band.* In case of rain on June 11, we move the festival to our rain date June 12.

Come experience a unique blend of musicians chosen for their craft and breadth of musical styles and creative processes. For one day they will share a stage. Genres will collide; voices will blend; and something new will be experienced in the intimate and natural environment of Fuller Craft Museum. The festival began last year as a response to the emergence of local talent that was writing and performing edgy, original music. Our goal then was to showcase that local talent, and that legacy is reflected in the number of musicians in our line up who are based south of Boston. This is a3-dimensional eventmusic meets craft meets natureall working together to provide a robust, nuanced, and enjoyable event. Musicians will not only give amazing performances throughout the day, but also give us insight into the craft behind their music through brief post show interviews in our artKitchen Caf. The Museum will have 6 exhibitions on view celebrating contemporary craft. For example CounterCraft: Voice of the Indie Craft Movement; The Faces of Politics: In/Tolerance; and Paper and Blade: Modern Paper Cutting are just a few of the craft exhibitions on view with artwork to challenge the eye and the mind. Throughout the day there will be hands-on craft activities for adults and children, including a large interactive sculpture designed by artist Duken Delpe. While people are outside Fuller Craft Museum enjoying the beautiful natural environment, scenic views, and outdoor sculptureinside there is sustainable programming in line with our theme #ArtSustainsUs: brief talks, films, information, and demos provided by Project Green Schools, Equal Exchange, and Solar City (a full schedule or sustainability programming to be posted on the website). Two Music Stages, One Designed by Artist Duken Delpe The live music acts are programmed on two separate stages. The main stage is behind the Museum and this year is will be designed by a Brockton-based artist named Duken Delpe (read more on the artist below), who will transform the stage into one awe inspiring, interactive sculpture crafted entirely out of recycled metal. Each audience member can participate in the creation of the piece by adding pieces of recycled metal to the sculpture during the musical performances. The sculpture/stage will be 32 feet across and 12 feet high and will serve as a community sculpture to commemorate the days festivities. The second stage is the heart of the Museum on the courtyard with the backdrop of Porters Pond and Lew Sewells found object sculpture entitled Duck. More acoustic groups will perform on the patio stage by the Blue Hills Brewery Craft Beer Garden. *line-up subject to change

Seminar on Predicting & Improving Product Reliability
Course "Predicting and Improving Product Reliability" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion. Overview: Although a primary objective of reliability analysis is to improve product reliability, there are many possible reasons for collecting and analyzing reliability data. Several examples are the following: Assessing product reliability in the field Predicting product warranty costs Estimate replacement part/spares requirements Assessing the effect of a proposed design change Demonstrating product reliability to customers or government agencies Comparing components from multiple suppliers Comparing components from different production periods, operating environments, or materials Improving reliability through the use of laboratory experiments Participants will gain awareness of the overall methodology for setting reliability targets, estimating product reliability from test data and/or field data, and determining whether or not reliability targets are achieved. Methods for estimating the reliability of subsystems and systems are also discussed. Participants will also learn how to calculate sample sizes for reliability testing and utilize reliability models to develop forecasts of future failures (e.g. warranty forecasts). Why should you attend? Understand reliability concepts and unique aspects of reliability data Understand underlying probability and statistical concepts for reliability analysis Develop competency in the modeling and analysis of time-to-failure data Understand reliability metrics and how to estimate and report them Estimate reliability of subsystems and systems Determine if reliability specifications are met (at specified confidence level) or whether design improvements are required Develop competency in the planning of reliability tests (excluding ALT) Analyze existing warranty data to predict future returns Develop awareness of more advanced topics in Reliability Who will benefit: The target audience includes anyone with a vested interest in product quality and reliability Product Engineers Reliability Engineers Design Engineers Quality Engineers Quality Assurance Managers Project / Program Managers Manufacturing Personnel Agenda: Day 1 Schedule Lecture 1: Reliability Concepts and Reliability Data Reliability in Product and Process Development Unique Characteristics of Reliability Data Censored Data Probability and Statistics Concepts Basic Probability Concepts Probability Distributions (e.g. Weibull, Lognormal, etc.) Lecture 2: Probability and Statistics Concepts (cont'd) Probability Distribution Functions CDF and Reliability Functions Reliability Metrics: Hazard Rate, Mean Time to Failure, Percentiles Conditional Reliability Burn-In (for Infant Mortality) Lecture 3: Assessing Selecting Models (Distributions) for Failure Data Probability Plotting with and without Censored Data Identifying the Best Distribution(s) Criteria for Comparing Models Lecture 4: Estimation of Reliability Characteristics Estimation Methods (Maximum Likelihood, Rank Regression) Reliability/Weibull Analysis (and other distributions) Precision of Estimates/Confidence Intervals Day 2 Schedule Lecture 1: Estimation of Reliability Characteristics (cont'd) Handling Multiple Failure Modes Comparing Reliability of Different Groups Lecture 2: Introduction to Reliability of Systems Series Systems Parallel Systems K-out-of-n Systems Complex Systems Introduction to System Modeling, Reliability Allocation Lecture 3: Introduction to Reliability Test Planning Test planning regimes Reliability Estimation Test Plans Reliability Demonstration Test Plans Sample Sizes for Estimation and Demonstration Test Plans Sample Size / Testing Time Trade-offs Lecture 4: Analysis of Warranty Data Data Setup Identifying Models for Failure Data Forecasting Future Warranty Returns Non-Homogeneous Production Periods Speaker: Steven Wachs Principal Statistician, Integral Concepts, Inc Steven Wachshas 25 years of wide-ranging industry experience in both technical and management positions.

Thalia Zedek Band - Minibeast, Black Helicopter, Positive Negative Man
This event is 18 and over
Thalia Zedek Band

2013 was a notable year for Thalia Zedek. She released her first album in five years, Via, which PopMatters called a rumbling, sweet, muscled set of tunes, as resilient as they are beautiful, which was followed by a tour across North America with Low. She also reunited with Come, the classic band she formed with Chris Brokaw in 1990, reissuing their classic debut Eleven:Eleven and playing their first shows in over a decade across the US and Europe. In October, following this intense flurry of activity, Thalia regrouped with her band in Boston to record an EP, harnessing the creative energy she had accumulated during her time on the road.

The resulting SIX opens with a full-band version of Fell So Hard, a characteristically mournful dirge that exudes a tenacious, slow-moving intensity. From there, Zedek explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships, employing some of the most sparse arrangements of her career. The spareness of tracks like Julie Said and Afloat achieve incredible emotional heft, letting Thalias lyrics, delivered in her unmistakable voice, take center stage. Alongside this new material is a cover of Freakwaters Flathand, which was originally released on the Plum 7 box set in 2007.

SIX is being released in advance of Thalias most extensive European tour in six years, and will be released in limited quantities on CD and 12 vinyl.
" Zedek specializes in thorny songs that unflinchingly address adult topics and full-grown problems, with the malleable backing of her guitar and band providing either momentary refuge or sympathetic cries of exasperation." - Pitchfork

" Hearing a new Thalia Zedek records gives me hope for music." - Dagger

" Those big open guitar cords only add to the songs emotional thrust. If listening to Via makes you feel good, chances are Zedek is feeling good. Powerful stuff." - Paste

"But Via, like so much of Zedeks work, fights the inclination to quit when the going gets tough. In less capable hands, a lyric like the truth will set you free, from leadoff track Walk Away, may sound shallow. Coming from Zedek, its a call to arms." - American Songwriter

When: Sep 1, 2016 9 PM in Allston, Massachusetts
Cost: $10 (Thu, 01 Sep 2016 21 )
