The Yes We Can! program is designed to honor and celebrate artists, scholars, scientists and community leaders who are 80 and above from across the Great Lakes Bay Region in a way that respects their knowledge and taps into their legacy of creativity. People of all ages enjoy the opportunity to engage with this dynamic group through their art, artist talks, music, luncheon soirees and more.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of The Barstow Foundation, NADA Northwood University, Space Studios and Balanced Living Chiropractic, the 2017 program promises to be just as dynamic and diverse as the previous three seasons.
The exhibit continues through February. Other events take place from January through May and will soon be on Creative 360’s website at becreative360.org and in a print brochure.
If you know of someone who is at least 80 who should be considered as part of future Yes We Can! programs, please contact Creative 360 at 989-837-1885 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
