This multi-day culturally immersive event will spotlight Florida-based talent alongside national/international artists while cultivating the City of St. Petersburg’s reputation as a premiere arts destination in America.
The goal is to foster conversations with audiences, the community and contributing artists while supporting emerging artists and providing an environment for learning through film, music, art, and interactive sessions.

Confirmed interactive presentations include “Live Well,” a discussion about learning how to live a better life through a nutritious, plant-based diet, “Radical Schools” will provide a fresh take on learning as we intersect education, music and action sports. Other interactive sessions include Seeds and Future City.
