#DTJax Weekly Update: August 16-22, 2022

Instagram of the Week

Last week, The Jessie invited the community into its space for JaxNEXT100, a week-long series of artist workshops, exhibits, guest speakers and more, commemorating the past 200 years of Jacksonville and celebrating the possibilities for the next 100 years.

Wednesday, Winterland Presents brought four live shows to The Jessie alleyway. Attendees enjoyed live music, a vinyl market, sound bath meditation and synth exploration. We love this shot by @Cre8Jax!
