ARTFUL is a way of perceiving, a way of doing, an effect. Through being ARTFUL we are led by passion; we contribute value and bring about a healthier, more fulfilled society.

ARTFUL is a quality. An opportunity. An invitation to approach life, work and challenges as a master would his craft. It’s unbound by industry, unlimited in its expression, and a wellspring of inspiration.

Join us at TEDxRVA 2016 as we discover and celebrate what it means to be ARTFUL.
