Please join in celebrating Seeds of a RenaissanceSustainable Pathways to Community Wellness and Resilience through Art on Thursday, May 11 from 6–8pm at Urban Arts Space. Seeds of a Renaissance examines personal relationships with nearby natural spaces through the lens of connection and care, and within the media of poetry and photography. This night is the pinnacle of the project, with spoken word and community discussions. We are excited to see you here and to share in the celebration of the corridors, creeks, ravines, and rivers close to home.
