It's that time of year again... Lovely and amazing people descend upon Asheville to infuse our little village with creativity, inspiration, and connection. From April 14-18, HATCHfest Asheville 2010 brings talent from all over the country to present at panels and keynote addresses, lead workshops, perform in concerts, and mentor emerging artists and creators through networking events. Now in its second year, the Asheville-based festival offers eight different event clusters: design, technology, video, fashion, architecture, journalism, music and photography.
Events range from morning panels to evening concerts and parties. Daytime events (workshops, panels) are free and open to the public. Evening events (concerts, parties) are ticketed. HATCH events happen in and around downtown Asheville from a home base of the "Innovator's Lounge" (On Broadway) at 49 Broadway.
From Sean McDonald, organizer of the Design & Tech cluster:
"This year’s festival brings four Design & Technology Mentors with diverse backgrounds and accomplishments; the mentors are here so you can connect with them. Each mentor will be giving a workshop, keynote or performance and be around town for you to grab a coffee and chat it up with them."
Check out the full schedule, or just the Design & Tech track. And the films are not to be missed. See you there!
