10 Years of Highlights
A Decade of Building Tomorrow’s Communities
From our premier Summit and Festivals each April in Charlottesville VA, to dozens of events throughout the year, we are storytellers about the future of our cities, starting with our own. Even while COVID rocked the world and shuttered events, we looked to find new avenues for impact. Our mission is quite simple; connect communities around big ideas, envision the future together, and share solutions to make it happen.
