This time around, we will be discussing:
The Food Situation
Stephanie Ganz will be heading up our food panel, which will involve folks from the restaurant world, the advocacy world, and the agriculture world. Questions could include, but maybe won’t, because we like to keep you guessing: What’s it like being part of a dining scene that’s so sharply on the up-and-up? How does that relate to the city’s hunger problem? Why is everything so dang fatty?

- Josiah Lockhart, Lockhart Family Farm

The Business of Being a Musician
With indie record labels producing nationally beloved albums and hip-hop artists generating huge followings, Richmond musicians seem to be ready to push music into the forefront of every RVA conversation, just like the good old days. Marc Cheatham will moderate this panel, and you, like us, will be hooked on his every word.
- Prabir Mehta, of Prabir and the Substitutes, Gold Rush, Full Moon Fever, and like, every single other thing
- Black Liquid
- Jesse Medaries, Spacebomb Records
Tinsel Town, Virginia
Virginia’s relationship with the film industry is growing and evolving like a…a Jurassic Park dinosaur. Only new and interesting! I, Susan, will be leading and maybe screwing up this panel of Virginia filmmakers and the people who help them–and filmmakers from elsewhere–immortalize our fair state on the screen.
