Aura Photo Session by Auraology, 10:00 am – 10:00 pm
Auraology is a pop-up photo and video studio, created to bring light into the world through showing people what their aura looks like. Through special technology, energy is read and then produced into an electronic interpretation of what aura colors would look like. Through metaphysics, color theory and research from people that can see auras, each color has been assigned attributes. The result is either an Aura Photo or Animated Aura video, specialized to your energy. Don’t miss this fun and insightful experience! Book your session in advance at

Las Fotos Project
Las Fotos Project’s mission is to elevate the voices of teenage girls from communities of color. Through the lens of photography, students capture moments that inspire them and others to critically examine the world around them and to become agents of change; channeling their creativity for the benefit of themselves, their community and future careers. Las Fotos Project’s youth photographers will be covering The New Wave – follow them at @lasfotosproject.
