    Description: The First Annual Art Awakening Festival is a student-run collaborative project dedicated to the establishment of a creative, cohesive artistic body within the Binghamton University community. To that end, we are facilitating a platform for dialogue, inspiration, and synergy between student art groups, professors, and alumni, hosting a gallery for student work at the festival, an event functioning as the culmination of students' creative pursuits, and raising awareness of our efforts through social media, film, and connection at an eye-to-eye level with our Pass-a-Flower project. We feel these things are necessary for the campus going forward because art is nothing unless it is shared, and there is so much more sharing we can do.
