4th Annual NICE (Noblesville Interdisciplinary Creativity Expo)
Join us for the 4th Annual NICE (Noblesville Interdisciplinary Creativity Expo) at Logan Street Sanctuary! This year we are grateful to have the support of an Indiana Humanities Initiative grant. The brainchild of author Sarah E. Morin and artist/author Alys Caviness-Gober, NICE is in its 4th year. The annual year-long project includes guest lecturers and workshops, and a one-night event in the Fall. NICEoffers 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). 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 guest panelists Dr. Lewis (Terry) Dibble, Professor Grant M. Vecera, Professor Janice Bankert-Countryman, , Professor Wendy A. Vogt, Professor David Hoegberg, Dr. Paul “Spike” Morin-Wilson, author Sarah E. Morin, and anthropologist/artist/writer Alys Caviness-Gober are invited to present their thoughts on the project and lead interactive discussions. We’ve also encouraged creative submissions inspired by each year’s selected passages, and at the NICE event in September, 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, Inc. at 1274 Logan St, Noblesville, IN 46060.
Logan Street Sanctuary, Inc. (LSS) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) not-for-profit cultural arts organization. Without your support, we couldn't host such great events! Thank you!
