Known affectionately as “The Brain Trust,” this distinguished group of cultural artists and scholars is responsible for the award-winning stature of ZORA! Festival.
Each March the ZORA! Festival National Planners convene for an intensive day and a half meeting to discuss the 5-year cycle of festivals. The agenda includes, not only finalizing upcoming festivals, but also identifying strategic relationships which will enhance and advance the mission of this special event. This meeting is hosted by the Dean of the University of Central Florida College of Arts & Humanities.
