Creative Louisiana: The Experience
Join us Friday, August 29, for a co-creative experience. Using techniques gleaned from three years of the creative goodness in the Creative Louisiana speaker series, Creative Louisiana founder Wendy Overton will facilitate a hands-on experience that will let attendees try out new ways of generating ideas and creative works. We'll have coffee and mingling at 8:30 am, and the event kicks off at 9:00 am.
You'll also get a sneak peek at events planned for the upcoming season. Don't miss this one. It promises to be loads of fun, a chance to reconnect with old friends or make new ones, and an immersive experience for everyone, from experienced to newbies.
