Creative Industry Roundtable – A Tribute to Larry Baza

Throughout the pandemic, Vanguard Culture has been hosting a series of creative industry roundtables with San Diego’s arts & culture community. This cross-pollination of creativity has already proved quite fruitful and we look forward to continuing these important conversations and connections.
