Created by NOMADNESS Travel Tribe, AUDACITY Fest is the gathering of like minds in travel and culture. This festival is the safe space for black and brown travelers from around the world, to build ideas, meet travel influencers, and experience parts of the world through on site activations. The day includes panels, one-on-one fireside chats, international music & DJs, celebrity appearances, food, vendors, and community love. The 6 focus areas are culinary, self-care, immersive, adventure, budget and luxury.
It’s estimated that the African-American community spends about $50 billion annually on travel and leisure with a large chunk of that spending coming from black women. However, the travel industry still spends very little marketing to the black community in comparison to how aggressively it targets white travelers, baby boomers, and other groups.
Due to expressed member interest I’m sharing this trip and festival I plan on attending. The plan is to use this to coordinate attendees for travel, shared accommodations etc.
Please note this is not a regular BOA event, so the planning work will be collaborative if you plan on attending you’ll be responsible to paying your own full way or contributing to shared costs where applicable.
I think this could be an exciting opportunity to meet other travelers and adventurers of color so I’m looking forward to it!
