Creative Mornings with Katie Hawkins-Gaar
Friday, June 29, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM (EDT)
For the first time, this June, all 29 CreativeMornings chapters will be hosting their events under one common, unified theme: The Intersection of Arts + Technology, presented in partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).
The arts are often seen as a "nice to have," especially amidst tight budgets. But we see things differently. It is through mixing arts and design with other disciplines that we can foster the next generation of creative doers and makers.
Tickets will be available Monday June 25th @ 11am. Follow us on twitter for the most up to date info.
