Art symposium to explore creative process
From Inspiration to Creation: Hope and the Creative Process will be coming to the Ocala Civic Theatre on March 8, OCT and the Marion Cultural Alliance announced.
The free 90-minute event is described as an “inspiring happy hour with the arts” and will feature conversations with local artists and dreamers. Inspired by the book “Art Is The Highest Form of Hope” by Phaidon Press, the symposium will explore the power of hope, the creative process and their potential to transform and renew individuals and communities.
The David and Lisa Midgett Foundation join OCT and the Marion Cultural Alliance as sponsors for the event, which will feature a panel of local leaders from the arts community.
Doors will open at 5 p.m., with the event beginning at 5:30 p.m. Facial coverings will be required and socially distanced seating will be arranged. Reservations are required and can be made by stopping by the OCT box office Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., or by calling 352-236-2274.
