“What is TRIPOD?”
TRIPOD is an annual arts festival hosted each November by University Baptist Church. Through the Back Door Coffeehouse (a connection with talents both local and national) we have come to understand the universal and deeply personal appeal of interactive live performances with our writers, poets, and musicians in a relaxed and friendly environment. We have come to appreciate that our community has a great many talented artists and a large number of interested adults who would like to continue connecting, mentoring, and sharing experiences in these arts. Our hope is to encourage and promote these rising opportunities for connection in the city of Hattiesburg. TRIPOD is our commitment to becoming a resource for such connection and development on the interpersonal level.
