”No one can whistle a symphony.  It takes a whole orchestra to play it.”  ~ H.E. Luccock
The concept is simple.  Each participant adds their own individual part to the collective art piece and beauty happens.  No experience is necessary. No crazy art talent is needed.  Together the participants in the Collective Art Piece will create a piece of artwork that represents what Imagine Fest is all about; freedom, empowerment, love, joy, equality, safety, protection, humility, passion, change, connection, support, inspiration, etc. 
Come join us for a truly transformational art experience.

Heal Yourself, Heal the World Conscious Conversation & Panel Discussion
Imagine Fest is more than an uplifting event, it is a call to action and an opportunity to grow through conscious conversation. Together we will explore the relationship between human trafficking, modern day slavery and systemic oppression - and the role each of plays in combatting them. If we are not actively imposing this insidiousness, we are likely passively perpetuating it.

How do we unearth and root out oppression in our own hearts, in our community, in our country, in the world?

Join our powerful panelists with varied lived experiences as we discuss the idea, "Heal Yourself, Heal the World," its implications, applications and putting it into action.
