The Geek Art / Green Innovator’s Festival or GA/GI (pronounced GAH-gee) serves as an educational forum within an arts format. This event celebrates the eco, arts and technology industries and includes participation from a variety of universities, artists, corporations, inventors and designers invited to showcase their people, projects or programs in spaces along the Penn Avenue Arts Corridor. This colorful event is also punctuated with music performances, displays, children’s activities, and alternative programming.
