We have weekly sewing and beading circles, there is a sewing center located at NWICDC that provides opportunity for community members to create. We have cultural artists who provide workshop learning for all ages. We also have events where we provide free vendor opportunities for artists to sell. These vary as do the creative opportunities. The ‘circles’ are weekly events where participants get together to create and share ideas and knowledge. A variety of learning opportunities both hands on and in professional development capacities.
