AGORA Festival happening May 2nd & 3rd

The premier AGORA Festival will be held in Urbana, IL, on May 2nd & 3rd, 2014. We are celebrating collaboration in our community – all things collective, cooperative, and collaborative! Whether business, org/group, or musical performance, we look to highlight collaboration as something that brings value to the community, and an important piece of sustainability, while encouraging others to start their own collaborative ventures!

Friday, May 2, will feature local and special music guests, great food and drink, and fun times over at Cafeteria & Company. $5 at the door.

Saturday, May 3, will feature a downtown open house with special events happening at participating organizations, exciting presentations by local groups, a panel discussing the deeper themes in collaborative ventures, and the featured musical performance by The New History.
