Join us for the 4th Annual NICE (Noblesville Interdisciplinary Creativity Expo) at Logan Street Sanctuary! The brainchild of author Sarah E. Morin-Wilson and artist/author Alys Caviness-Gober, NICE is in its 4th year., and is an annual year-long project that 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 our passages come from The Three Musketeers (Alexandre Dumas), The Odyssey (Homer), The Brothers Karamazov (Fyodor Dostoyevsky), and Follow The River (James Alexander Thom). The event on September 29th will include presentations of Creative Submissions that are inspired by this year’s four books and/or their selected passages.
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 wants people to connect to the classics in fresh new ways, relevant to their own experiences, and share their connections with each other. NICE’s workshops offer opportunities for people to revisit the selected books, discuss them in terms of imagery, symbolism, cultural context, and share inspiration. In effect, we ask our workshop participants to have a discussion with the original authors of the selected literary pieces. NICE lectures and workshops are where we focus on discussion and interpretations. We also encourage people to create new art ~ in all mediums ~ inspired by each year’s selected passages, and at the NICE event in the Fall participants are given four minutes to share their own interpretations of the passages with our audience. The NICE lectures, workshops, and annual event occur at Logan Street Sanctuary, 1274 Logan St, Noblesville, IN 46060.
