We are seeking nonprofits (limited space available) and Healing Art Vendors to be present at Xpand Fest on June 9th, 2018 from 12pm - 10pm!

These goals are designed for people and communities to come together to solve some of the most challenging problems facing our own town and the world today. Through using this global medium locally, it provides a platform for individuals, businesses, nonprofits and the creative sector of Asheville to come together to actualize the change we must make for the betterment of all.
