Festival of Creativity: the Ultimate interdisciplinary experience. Located in venues throughout the Montevallo campus and the City of Montevallo.
FORTE Festival is an annual three-day celebration of interdisciplinary creativity. Its goal is to inspire new expressions of creativity at the threshold between the fine arts and other disciplines at UM and between UM, the Arts Council and the City of Montevallo.
FORTE creates synergy between the UM College of Fine Arts, the College of Arts and Sciences and the Montevallo Arts Council, and is supported in part by a grant from the UM Concert and Lecture Series
