Art Pop-Ups with the Peterborough Art Hive 
Fridays throughout June, 10am – noon

What if we could connect with each other, our community, and ourselves through the arts? What if we had a place we could go where we were seen as creative beings, capable and whole? What if that place were free of charge, offered a variety of materials, and space to create? What if it were okay to knit on your own, make a mural with a group, write a poem, work on a song, scribble with charcoal and paint over it with bright blue paint?
If this is something that appeals to you or someone you know, the Peterborough Art Hive is partnering with Seeds of Change for the months of May and June to make this happen. Check out the details below and/or in the attached poster. Please forward as appropriate to people in your circles. This is for people of all ages, all orientations, all abilities, all walks of life. We hope to see you there!
Free, supplies provided, no experience necessary. Donations welcome. Seeds of Change. 534 George St. N.
