What Would You Rather Be Doing? // How Pioneers are Born

People seldom set out to be pioneers—it’s only after they’ve answered their calling that they are labeled as such. Community advocate and gallery owner Carla Bristol implores us to find the pull of our passions and ask ourselves, as she did, “why not?”

About the speaker

Carla Bristol is the owner of Gallerie 909, the preeminent art space presenting works by established and emerging artists of the African diaspora. She is also the founder of the Annual Black Arts and Film Festival, and Jamii—a private label clutch and clothing line. Born in Guyana and raised in New York, Carla is exceptionally active in the St. Pete community and strengthens it through art, culture, and decisive action. She recently closed her brick and mortar gallery space to pursue a more collaborative and flexible model through which to impact the community.
