Arrive to find yourself immersed in the alternative habitats of “When the Water Rises,” Julie Heffernan’s exhibition created in response to environmental disaster and planetary excess, the picture-perfect setting for this extraordinary gathering of Tampa Bay ‘Game Changers’ and citizens.

Together we will examine the challenges and the opportunities we have as a Tampa Bay family to create a better future - COLLABORATIVELY.

We will delve into the unique circumstances of our area and the solutions activists and trailblazers are busy implementing.

We will explore ways to join forces to make our bay area a truly heartwarming and interconnected community to call home.

We will present the three-hour, transformative and riveting Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium which has inspired and empowered people all over the world to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on the planet.

The time is now to:

AWAKEN to possibilities right here in our region now!
ENGAGE with other creative, kindred spirits now!
COLLABORATE to exponentially multiply all of our efforts now!

Your love donation will be accepted with gratitude at the entrance.

Seating is limited, so please register early.

Bring a "Brown Bag" Lunch & beverages. Please mark it with your name to be placed in the designated eating area and it will be waiting for you at the lunch break. (Refrigeration will not be available.) The intention for the lunch break is to offer opportunities for dialogue during lunch to begin building relationships, and to view the magnificent art exhibit ‘When the Water Rises: Recent Painting By Julie Heffernan’ which will play a role in an afternoon session.

We want to offer you the opportunity, if you are part of an organization, to bring fliers to distribute for your upcoming initiatives and events.  We will have a few tables inside the entrance to the gallery to be shared by all.  We request that you bring no more than two separate - 8½”x11” fliers (multiple copies to hand out). That way everyone will have some space to promote their organizations events to those interested.  We do ask that you refrain from bringing petitions into the R.K. Bailey Arts Studios Building.

Suggested Parking options at the Scarfone/Hartley Gallery: The Rick Thomas Parking Garage is between the W North A St and Fredric H. Spalding Dr. Please park at the higher levels of the garage (there are elevators). The garage is diagonal from the The Scarfone/Hartley Gallery which is located inside the R.K. Bailey Arts Studios Building @ 310 North Boulevard, on the University of Tampa campus. If you turn from W. Kennedy Boulevard onto North Boulevard, go to the first light @ Frederic H. Spaulding Dr. and turn right. The entrance to the garage will be almost immediately on your right. (Garage is on the SE corner of that intersection.)  I have check-marked both the garage & the gallery on this map.
