TRANSFORMATIVE VISIONS is a dynamic multimedia arts event with a message of peace, justice, and possibility. In a climate of pervasive violence and division, and in this time of growing social movements – including #BlackLivesMatter – our intent is to both challenge and inspire. To lift up the truth that each of us carries a creative vision. Within each of us is the power to transform ourselves, our communities, and our world.
