He discovered photography at an early age and hasn’t put the camera down since. “I focus on telling long term stories based on health and education.” says Rich. He continues, “My most recent project is about memory, dementia and palliative care.” For more, visit www.richbeckermeyer.com.
After losing an undisclosed sum both years, TBD Fest (otherwise known as The Bridge District Festival) has incurred blame from investors and rival music promoters for being underfunded. General consensus is that if a festival can’t pay for its talent before selling a single ticket, it’s under-capitalized.
In the last 50 years, higher education’s customer base has become decidedly more female. In 1967, 40 percent of college students were women. By 2014, it was 56 percent. The U.S. Department of Education projects that will climb to 59 percent by 2025.
But the people responsible for delivering those educations are still overwhelmingly male.
The much anticipated TBD Fest kicked off on Friday, October 3rd at The Bridge District Water Front in West Sacramento. Attendees enjoyed 3 days of local sounds, art and food.
Special thanks to photographer Rich Beckermeyer and SacRev for allowing us to share their photos from the event.
