Calling all social media savants, marketing monkeys, musicians, designers, planners, and Jacks-of-All-Trades! This past spring, Tom Tom Founders Fest 2012 launched: two block parties, a month of creative events, and a 60+ band music festival on the Downtown Mall. The theme was Charlottesville as a creative hub for music, art & innovation.
