    Dogwood Festival arts residency with Amy Rich

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

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.
