This project was built from grit and passion. With no major sponsorship, this installation was created with the purest intention to heal the community through the arts.

Our purest intention is to preserve and cultivate a vibrant and sustainable art ecosystem here in our hometowns. Attending and participating in this project is a direct venue to social change that produces results through economic environment, community connection, mental wellness, and youth development.

We hope that it will provoke inner reflection and community connection. This event is a direct action step to nourish people of all ages. Led by Bay Area locals, this activation centers local businesses, engages the youth, and is connects the community in a brand new way at the intersection of art and technology.
