Your favorite creative get-together is back! Elevate your weekend with yet another edition of Talks Around Town. Here’s what you can expect from this free event: A talk bringing together modern icons in fashion, gastronomy, product innovation and film production. A makers market featuring a diverse array of pop-up booths and merchant tables. A film screening that showcases the stories and talents of young filmmakers. A design workshop that turns recycled plastic into works of art.

Gain insight from Juan Ramón Jiménez, chairman of NPO FootRoots. What is the status of the local independent film scene? Filmmaker and university lecturer Kris Villarino can give you the scoop.
