What are people saying from last year?

It was exactly what I needed after quite a few stressful months. I truly miss being creative in my everyday life, I need to figure that out!

The celebration was a monumental creative expression. The stories were compelling and transformative. This amazing community uses the arts to help heal what divides us.

We all had tears in our eyes, the evening was so beautiful.
