The Great Convergence

Friday, May 16, 2014 at 12:00pm to 12:45pm

Manifest Lot, 1001 S. Wabash Ave., 60605

The Great Convergence is Manifest’s opening ceremony where faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends, donors and parents come together as a singular Columbia community before the urban arts festival erupts into the South Loop.  Created by our students and guided by our faculty and staff, the Great Convergence is a grand spectacle using metaphor, pageantry, ritual and theatricality to capture our spirit and ethos.  This is our signature moment where we celebrate our creative culture, and honor all of our graduating students during their culminating “Hell Yeah” Ceremony as we send them off to showcase their bodies of work at Manifest.
