BAAM Because Art Always Matters

2nd Thursday of each month

You are invited to join us for wine and snacks at our October gathering of visual, literary and performance artists.

BAAM (Because Art Always Matters) started meeting in 2017, on the 2nd Thursday of each month.  Last month we had an animated group of poets, writers, actors, painters, sculptors, and ceramicists. Come and be inspired!

Writers Group

October 22 at 3pm

On Sunday, September 24 twelve local supportive and enthusiastic writers came out to Creekside to help organize our first writers’ support group here at Creekside. They were driven by a desire for community—a supportive writers’ community.  

Creekside Arts is proud to offer that supportive community.

Our next meeting: October 22 at 3:00pm.

If you were not able to make the September meeting and would like to participate, please contact John Heckel at jh2@humboldt.edu.
