Upcoming Third Thursday Events
Virtual Third Thursday: Resiliency Care Package
Resiliency is important during times of crisis. This Third Thursday, we ask ourselves: how do we refill our cups and build strong reserves that will last? We present a virtual care package, in collaboration with local Native artists, teachers, healers, and elders, who will share creative nutrients to draw on for hope, resiliency, healing, and joy.
