The brainchild of author Sarah E. Morin and artist/author Alys Caviness-Gober, NICE is now in its 4th year. The annual year-long project includes guest lecturers and workshops, and a one-night event in the Fall. NICE offers the opportunity to discuss and be (re)inspired by four classic literary passages selected by Alys and Sarah E. every year.
This year, passages come from The Three Musketeers (Alexandre Dumas), The Odyssey (Homer), The Brothers Karamazov (Fyodor Dostoyevsky), and Follow The River (James Alexander Thom). NICE breathes new life into classic literature by encouraging people, high-school age and up, to discuss the books selected each year, and encourages critical thinking and experimenting with creativity.
NICE’s workshops offer opportunities for people to discuss the passages and books in terms of imagery symbolism, cultural context, share inspiration, and to connect to classics in fresh new ways, relevant to their own experiences, and share their connections with each other. In effect, they ask participants to have a
discussion with the original authors of the selected literary pieces. NICE lectures and workshops are where they focus on discussion and interpretations, and also encourage people to create new art, in all mediums,
inspired by each year’s selected passages. At the NICE event in September, participants are given four minutes to share their own creative interpretations with our audience. The NICE workshops and annual event occur at Logan Street Sanctuary, 1274 Logan St, Noblesville, IN 46060.
Workshops Fees: $10 per person per workshop or all five for $40. Creative Submissions are not required to participate in workshops or attend the September 29th event, but you’re welcome to bring the tools of your creativity (any media) to the workshops (Creative Submissions form is the last page of this document, and is separate from Workshop Registration form; there is no fee for Creative Submissions). Space is limited.
