ABOUT: SonneBlauma celebrates its 15th and final season with Affinity - SB-ADaPT Fest Sprouts: a project that continues to take bold strides in manifesting a vision and a mission unlike any other - providing artistic experiences of a lifetime that educate, uplift and inspire audiences and artists alike. Building on the phenomenal success of the inaugural year of the critically acclaimed SB-ADaPT Festival, SonneBlauma implements phase two of the project by cultivating relationships established during the festival. Bridges of opportunity built through the community building component of the Festival result in forging new relationships that keeps the creative flow between communities vibrant and the SonneBlauma spark of inspiration alive in the hearts of participating artists and audiences.
