February 2023 - Poetry in March, Snow at Creekside Arts, Spring Residency Membership Opportunities

Poetry Evening with Michael Bickford

“Ever since I was rudely, but probably wisely, dissuaded from drawing and painting in the 6th grade, poetry has been the sketches I make of what my mind projects onto the inside of my skull. I transfer them to paper before they fade. These days they fade quicker, but I have more time, since I retired from teaching. In between sketching I draw on the bigger canvas of fiction as well." --Michael.

You are invited to an afternoon of poetry with local poet Michael Bickford.

Creekside Arts is  designed and created to bring together artistic residencies, workshops and performances. Our goal is to create an environment in which creative artists and audiences interact in a positive and structured way to learn from and inform each other and then bring that learning into the larger Humboldt community. To that end Creekside Arts is committed to equity and welcomes people from diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences.
