Brushwood Center is partnering with Art Night to create a three part series focused on making connections and sharing our passions.

Art Night is an event that celebrates unique talents and interests. Attendees can choose to share/present for a short block of time on any interest (music, poetry, urban planning, juggling, your favorite sweaters your favorite book etc) that they are passionate about. It’s not about how skilled the attendees are at their passion, but rather, it’s about their passion itself. Whether you have toured the world in a famous band, or it’s your first time singing in public, at Art Night, everyone and everything is valued equally. What matters most is the sharers’ love for what they are sharing.

Come to present, or come to support, enjoy, and meet new friends!

Each event will also feature an opening icebreaker and activity (featuring supplies from BASE!) and an engaging discussion on contemporary social themes. Attendees are encouraged to bring nut-free food to share.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
