Fresh Inc 2020 – Day 1

Monday, June 8, 2020

Welcome to Fresh Inc 2020! We didn’t get to kick off our festival around a campfire like we normally would, but we still managed to share smores together around a virtual campfire! We bonded by ranking pictures of each other’s creative recipes. Some people went above and beyond the challenge! Enjoy some of these highlights:

After a heated smores contest on Sunday night, Fresh Inc faculty kicked off a busy week of workshops, rehearsals, and performances by sharing their personal career development stories with this year’s participants. Festival musicians and composers also participated in a public speaking workshop led by Parker and Melissa. We even had an epic lip sync battle to demonstrate the importance of physical gesture in communication.

On Monday night, Fresh Inc faculty, participants, and alumni gathered together for a roundtable discussion to reflect upon and decide how to take action during this current time of racial tension and inequity, both collectively and individually.
