About the Crosscut Festival
Crosscut presents two days of thought-provoking conversations and innovative thinking, tackling the most important issues of our times. Journalists, politicians, authors, and newsmakers from our community and around the nation come together to take a hard look at the people, policy and events that shape our lives.
2019 Crosscut Festival
Crosscut Festival programming explores the fabric of our cultural conversation across a wide range of subjects. Sessions will include programming in tracks including Keynote, Race & Social Justice, Politics, Business, Science & the Environment, Interactive Workshops, and Meetups. We’ll also have live music, food, drinks and social events.
