Culture Connection Success!

Despite the terrible weather, a great time was had by all at Culture Connection this past April 14th and 15th. A huge shout out to Kevin Spencer, whose presentation  “Art Across the Lifespan – Empowering People of All Ages & Abilities” was a truly enriching and eye opening experience.

Special thanks to our panel who participated in the Louisiana Presenters Network session “Presenting in Non-Traditional Venues”  and all the attendees who braved the rain to be there.

Stay tuned for more events and amazing workshops and presentations coming your way!
