Why are we doing it
Our Cultural Plan identifies a need to bring the cultural community together on a regular basis for learning, exchange and…let’s be honest…a chance to step away from the daily grind, be inspired, and have some fun as well as share useful tools and information to inspire a refreshed perspective. This will be the pilot for what we hope will be an annual gathering.
