Clarkston Culture Fest
“The Clarkston Culture Fest aims to highlight the best of what Clarkston has to offer, and to share it with others. Festival goers also gained appreciation of the various foods, music, languages, vendors and activities.”
Beginning last year, New Expression Clarkston headed up the mural making booth at the fest. NXP also performed onstage and a few volunteers participated in the Run for Refugees 5k. To learn more about the festival and see some highlights from it click HERE.
Alif Institute Arab Festival
”Enjoy a week-end filled with Arabic flavors, sights and sounds! Enjoy unique live performances on the stage. Embark on a culinary tour at the Arab world food court.“
Something New volunteers sold shirt with meaningful messages and got the chance to learn about Arab culture. The Arab Fest was a beautiful display of unity and diversity. Learn more about the Arab Festival and Alif Institute HERE.
420 SweetWater Festival
420 SweetWater Festival: April wouldn’t be complete without 420. Some incredible art came out of New Threads t-shirt designs for this festival.
While volunteers sold tshirts, Something New also participated in a Corn Hole competition to raise money for the organization. We came close to winning the prize and are gearing up for next year. Check out more about the festival and how it supports local Atlanta charities HERE.
