5pm to 11pm Free. Creative City Project. Orange Avenue Downtown Orlando FL. With an estimated 15,000 attendees and more than 800 artists at Creative City Project 2015, it was the biggest and baddest yet. But it's only the beginning of what we can achieve together as we help Orlando become a city know for creativity and innovation. My sketches will be projected on the side of the Sun Trust building as part of the event.
The Creative City Project 2016 will take over Downtown Orlando with art and creativity.
And this marks a new rhythm for the Creative City Project. From here on out, the Creative City Project will take place the THIRD WEEKEND OF EVERY OCTOBER. No more need to look up dates. Just remember the third weekend of every October. This should make it easier for us all to remember and make space for our city's most exciting art and performance event!
Journey with us as we awaken the streets and public spaces of our city with art and performance. See Orlando like never before as you immerse yourself among the 100 person Central Florida Community Arts Orchestra. Encounter the Orlando Ballet among the high rises of the city. And, back again this year is a performance from La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil high above Orange Ave.
The Creative City Project is ready to awaken you to a new life of deep inspiration. As you walk the streets of the city, you’ll encounter unexpected creative experiences that remind you that more is possible. You’ll discover amazing cross genre artistic collaborations; large scale performances; and intimate, interactive moments. And when it’s all over, you’ll walk away inspired to embrace a life of adventure the rest of the year.
