Folklore #2 | Music + Makers

In Event, Folklore, Uncategorized on June 17, 2016 at 1:32 am

On Wednesday, June 1 Tempus Projects and Vessel Collective hosted the second Folklore, featuring interviews with a music journalist and the creators of Tampa Indie Flea. Ray Roa writes for Sub Ap!, Creative Loafing, and TBT* to name a few as well as working part-time at a local advertising agency. Seanissey Loughlin and Rosey Williams created an event that fosters the makers community and the ‘buy local’ movement. Each of the interviewees comes from a different background, but they’re cut from the same cloth because each is passionate about seeing their friends, neighbors, and Tampa as a whole flourish. About 40 of us listened to their personal histories, lessons they’ve learned, what they love about our city, and what they still hope to see happen in the next few years to our local culture. All proceeds of the event benefit Tempus Projects and its future programming.

This event also marked the 6th birthday of Vessel Collective. That’s 6 years of sharing the successes and struggles of artists, musicians, and creativists. We’re hosted more than a dozen community events under this moniker, including  ‘The Travelogues’ and now ‘Folklore’. Thanks for your support and we’d love to see you at the next events in August (The Travelogues) and September (Folklore).

Thank you to Ryan Seybold for capturing all of Folklore #2’s lovely angles. Keep creating and building, Tampa!
