The Process Project begins.
It’s a conversation. It’s a workshop.
It’s an investigation of creativity  - and how art gets made.

The audience is exclusive: seating is limited to 35. Who attends? You, if you’re interested in how creativity gets better with collaboration, cross-pollination; if you’re a practicing or beginning artist and want to hear from others who get work done and get it out there; if you’re looking for inspiration and motivation; or if you want to support and discover local artists.
The Process Project launches October 4th, 2-4 pm
and runs until April. Six lectures in total.
