Finding Form in the Void: Artmaking, Storybuilding, Futureweaving

Jan 13, 2022 3:00pm EST-4:00pm EST

Imagine your way into 2022.

It’s a new year, an auspicious time to cast new stories. We believe artmaking renders us more capable of probing the unknown, building different stories about our future, and weaving them together with the stories of others. Join us for a welcoming, playful, generative experiment that provides space to open windows into, and reflect upon, each other’s imaginations. No specific skills necessary, just come curious.
