The Springfield Township Arts Center is preparing for a complete renovation of its center. We invite Young Professionals to help in the design process! We will begin with an entertaining party on July 13th where ArtsConnect will share a brief presentation about what ArtsConnect stands for and the goals for the future. Our partner in this event, Madisono's Gelato, will then invite participants to visit each room of the Center where they can taste a different flavor of Gelato and write down ideas for new programming and design features they would like to see in each room. We will be converting the front desk of the Center to a bar where YP's can test out bourbon, vodka or rum infused gelato shakes! YUM!!!
If the excitement of having your fingerprints on the design of an arts center interests you further, you will be invited to attend two additional brain storm sessions and can even help plan the grand re-opening in 2019! Please register in advance.
