Pulse, a 2-day BIPOC indie festival led by Charlotte BIPOC creatives, spotlighting the city’s rich talent in music, art, fashion, film, dance, & cuisine coming in Spring 2024

Pulse intends to serve the Charlotte community by highlighting the immense culture and range of talent that BIPOC creatives possess. This will empower us to continue to thrive in our fields of expertise while giving us the tools, connections, and platforms needed to excel. By spotlighting and empowering BIPOC creatives, it creates a ripple effect that results in positive change for the ENTIRE community. This will also inspire youth or onlookers to walk into their creative passions with vigor. Though Pulse will spotlight BIPOC creatives, charities, and businesses; this festival is intended to be enjoyed by ALL of Charlotte, creative AND professional. All will leave connected, entertained, informed, and exposed to the city's hidden gems.
