Connect: Beyond the Page: Music – Storytelling – Film – Social Justice
I’m excited to host a film screening and interactive Climate Listening Project discussion at Connect: Beyond The Page Festival on April 20 at 2pm at the Grail Movie House in Asheville, NC!
Using music (song), film (screen), and storytelling (page), Connect: Beyond The Page explores how collaboration and adaptation create a narrative that can influence social change. Using Asheville, NC as a creative hub, panels, performances, and screenings will take place in unique settings around the city. Our event brings together youthful ideology and well-worn experience to create a diverse demographic of men and women who are pioneers in their field. Attendees come to broaden their horizons and their minds.
The festival takes place Earth Day weekend. The lineup includes:
