Jackson Young Professionals Announces TOPIA Art + Tech Festival

Jackson, MI, 49201-06/06/2024- Jackson Young Professionals ("JxnYP"), the organization that brought you the Bright Walls Mural Festival, is excited to launch its newest festival, TOPIA Art+Tech Fest.

Last year’s prototype festival (previously called ETA) was an excellent primer on how to create meaningful experiences at the intersection of art and technology. The expanded,
multi-day TOPIA festival will be free to attend and will feature a variety of interactive and immersive art installations, as well as live music and unique hands-on educational opportunities for “students” of all ages. Festival goers will also enjoy the usual staples like local food trucks and the Downtown Social District.

“This festival is not just an event; it's a celebration of the unconventional, a fight against the mundane. It unites creativity and innovation, fostering a space where imagination knows no
bounds.” - Melissa Evans, Creative Director

“TOPIA looks to highlight how we embrace the innovative spirit that makes Jackson an attractive place for investment in manufacturing and technology education, careers, and businesses while highlighting our love for art and creativity.” - Jacqueline Austin, JxnYP Festival Chair

Jackson has long held an emphasis on public art, and with the momentum Bright Walls and other art festivals have created, TOPIA plans to continue to transform our community into a
center for innovation and artistic culture by focusing on three main outcomes: Expanding Artistic Boundaries, Creating Elevated Experiences, and Inspiring Future Innovators.
