What does my ticket include?

Two days of workshop sessions and our pitch party. Two live performances. Complimentary access to Common House Richmond. Some light snacks. The opportunity to produce something that will become part of an art exhibit.

What's your refund policy?

I can't make it both days, is there a one-day pass?

All RESONATE tickets give you access to both days of the festival.

When will the full schedule be announced?

The majority of our lineup has been finalized (check it out here!), and any remaining sessions will be announced late August. Stay tuned to the ICA’s social media channels and the Community Media Center mailing list for the most up-to-date information.
