Regional Summit – Charlottesville 2018-03-16T13:07:00+00:00

About this Summit

Home to three founding fathers who would become U.S. presidents, Charlottesville is steeped in history – not just in museums but woven into the very fabric of the community. The city features a rich community around music, books and the performing arts.¬†Charlottesville’s interactive space, IX ArtPark, will be among our settings for this remarkable community media gathering.

The Regional Summit host station is WTJU (91.1 FM). Founded in 1955 on the campus of the University of Virginia, WTJU features classical, jazz, folk and community-oriented programming.
