Campfire Conversations – Spark Ideas and Ignite Action.

Join your creative community for an evenings of dialogue with nationally-recognized and locally-active artists. Delve into the meaningfulness of art — life as art. Allow yourself to ask questions, reflect on connections and imagine the possibilities of community-engaged art.
