Primavera events aim to help community to explore, inspire and create
Primavera, or early spring, is a month-long festival that gathers Gainesville’s leading artistic, musical, scientific, and start-up events under one umbrella event. It is considered Gainesville’s cultural renaissance, heralding the city’s “Live, Work, and Play” attitude. Executive Director of Florida’s Eden, Annie Pais, is one of the leading directors of Primavera. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Leanna Scachetti talked with Pais who says the main goal of Primavera is to bring together the best of what is already in Gainesville.
It’s new, it’s online, and it’s all about Gainesville. GainesvilleConnect.com is a brand new website that is designed to be the one-stop-shop for a variety of information about services and opportunities located in Gainesville. Annie Pais also talked with WUFT’s Leanna Scachetti about what GainesvilleConnect.com means for the city.
