It is FLOOD's desire to raise awareness for new and emergent art, exposing audiences and communities to upstream sensibilities and approaches.

Since that first year, SoundWalk became an international event. Attendees converged from various cities, states and countries. Artists ran the gamut from respected figures current in the international scene to talented guerrilla artists. SoundWalk also sponsored pre and post performance series.

FLOOD is in the process of connectivity by expanding both geographically and conceptually.

Mission

It is FLOOD's desire to raise awareness as well engender appreciation for new and emergent art, exposing both audiences and the larger community to aesthetic sensibilities and approaches that exist outside those of the mainstream.
