Connecting Charlottesville for a Brighter Tomorrow

Our mission is quite simple: connect communities around big ideas, envision the future together and share solutions to make it happen. From our signature Festival each April, to dozens of events throughout the year, we are storytellers about the future of our cities, starting with our own.

12TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL 

APRIL 17—21, 2024
Charlottesville, VA

Music. Art. Ideas.

A festival about the future of our community

Our 2024 theme is TOGETHER. It’s a statement of our community’s interconnection and shared future.

 

It unifies all the talks, conferences, workshops, meditations, concerts, mixers, dance parties and more.

Gathering together is at the heart of everything we do. For us, community is interactive, participatory, and collaborative. We start with the invitation, let’s tell our stories and showcase the best about our hometown.
