Public Eye Soar
Projection Festival

November 8 /9 / 10  -  2018    6-10 p.m.
Historic Downtown Panama City. Florida


As of: November 7, 2018

Hurricane Michael made a direct hit two weeks ago on Panama City and the surrounding area - causing major damage.

Many people are homeless, many are still without power.

Major relief efforts are underway and the response from the rest of the country has been inspiring.

We too here at the Public Eye have sustained damage to our offices, and are still digging out.

In the spirit of "the show must go on" we have made the decision to proceed with Public Eye Soar 2018.

The exact form, size and schedule of the show are still being worked out.

If you would like to volunteer please contact us at PublicEyeSoar@gmail.com

A tentative schedule (as we know it) is below. Please see our Facebook for regular updates.

Come help us make art, light and play.
