Art and Science are coming together for this year’s Survive and Thrive conference and arts festival is taking place Wednesday Oct. 23 through Saturday Oct. 27 in the downtown St. Cloud area. The event focuses on survivors, caregivers, families, and those who were lost to sudden cardiac arrest.
The event will feature artist presentations, panel discussions, CPR training, and medical technology demonstrations.
National award winning author Jimmy Santiago Baca will kick off the event Wednesday night in Ritsche Auditorium at St. Cloud State University with a spoken word musical poetry performance at 7 p.m. St. Cloud State English Professor and event organizer Dr. Rex Veeder says Baca represents the survive and thrive mentality.
A collective of St. Cloud musicians will perform as Dr. Veeder’s Thriving Hearts Club Band on D.B. Searles' upper level on Thursday starting at 7:30 p.m. The band features members of Collective Unconscious and The Revolution Five.
