Please join us for the first in a series of independent panel discussions and short film screenings, sharing experiences from transitional art communities as a gateway to exploring topics in arts engagement and gentrification in the Tampa Bay area.

Panelists will bring local, national and international perspectives in fields of arts, business, real estate, and administration, encouraging open discussion aimed at exploring new ideas and addressing challenges in our ever-growing cities.

Conversation will be followed by a screening of the short film Right to Wynwood, an investigative documentary that explores causes and effects of gentrification in one Miami neighborhood through interviews with developers, gallerists, artists, community leaders, and members of the local Puerto Rican population.
