OPTIMISTA: Cinéconferences for a Hopeful Tomorrow is comprised of a series of multidisciplinary cultural events designed to explore the essential social themes of courage, compassion, love, and community.

Yellow Pad Sessions exists to leverage the considerable power of art to inspire meaningful social change. OPTIMISTA is our latest effort. OPTIMISTA presents multidisciplinary cultural events intended to offer audiences 4 distinct evenings filled with celebration, uplifting art, and creative expression that explores the complexity of interwoven personal and social narratives.

OPTIMISTA is an experience, not merely an event. Be a part of it and be a part of hope.
