Creative Lives Series


Creative Lives

RiverArts continues to explore the creative energy in our community. Several times each year, we present another line up of exciting speakers who will share their passions, insights, wisdom, personal experiences, and philosophies with us. The Eastern Shore is rich with writers, painters, potters, woodworkers, musicians, storytellers, actors, and creative people in all fields. Each of these inspirational folks has a story to tell, a unique way of looking at the world, and a special form of expression. Hearing about their journeys touches us in ways that make us aware of our own possibilities and sometimes moves us to forge ahead in our own quests or take detours that will fuel some passion or inner desire.  Please join us to hear from these local luminaries as they talk about what they have seen, felt, and learned on their creative journeys.
