    Dogwood Festival arts residency with Amy Rich

    May 7-11, as part of Dogwood Festival 2012, IN UNUSUAL PLACES.

We’ll emphasize how their  stories are really little histories. Over the weeks following the workshop the “story people” will appear almost magically “In Unexpected Places”-declaring themselves and their student creators as an important part of our community as a whole.
