MISSION STATEMENT To bring socially and environmentally conscious music and art events, including an annual festival to Southeast Florida. These events feature critically acclaimed and rising artists ranging from the visual arts to the oratory arts with a focus on themes such as environmentalism, unity, and eradicating injustices and their complex intersections.
BACKGROUND Light in the Dark Fest began during peak Covid 2020 as two online Fundraiser Festivals for Food Chain Workers Alliance and Save Our Stages. It featured original new recorded performances and debut music videos by critically acclaimed artists such as SUSTO, International Folk Music Awards’ Artist of the Year, Allison Russell (with Birds Of Chicago), legend Robyn Hitchcock, ambient music pioneer, Laraaji, and many others. The online events also included a short film contest judged by the founders of the Denali Film Festival, along with a visual art contest facilitated by university faculty.
