Teens With a Purpose (TWP) Annual Community Fest doles out heaps of love and happiness on Saturday, July 28th, 2018 when FUSE FEST (Focus on Unity, Spirit and Edutainment) takes place at the Safe Creative Community Space (SCS).
FUSE Fest was created to bring together community members in unity, to be stronger, healthy and happy. FUSE Fest was initiated in 2013 as a three part summer community experience for the surrounding community.
FUSE Fest celebrates the heart of inner-city Norfolk, where health, safety and income disparities are greatest, through this intergenerational festival held in the downtown Church Street/St. Paul’s District.
Fuse Fest takes place in the Safe Creative Community Space and Urban Garden and spans out over the adjacent ½ acre lot and into every corner of the Vivian C. Mason Art and Technology Center for Teens. This year’s theme is “Living My Best Life”.
The MAIN STAGE will be activated with Inspirational, Reggae, Latin, R&B, Neo Soul and Hip-Hop music, plus Spoken Word Poetry and comedy. The event also includes Yoga, Chalk Walk, Public Art Project, Community Step and Dance Show, Community Dance Cyphers throughout the day plus local and regional performing artist and Norfolk born, National Music Producer Gabe Niles all at FUSE FEST.
