352Creates is a single day of participatory, pop-up style art-making and creativity on February 26th, 2016 in the 352 area code, with the purpose of communicating that creativity is fun, good for you, and can build stronger communities.

You envision it, you do it, and we’ll promote it for you. Anything goes – painting, chalking, singing, dance, theatre, yoga, tai chi, cooking, gardening – think outside the box! Simply provide fun and inclusive moments of art-making at your location or in the community. Activities should be free and accessible to anyone. They can be simple and cost little or nothing.

To learn about more about the exciting activities we have planned, please visit 352Creates.org and join the Facebook group.

You are invited to attend the 3rd Community Forum on Tuesday, February 16th from 5:30-6:30pm at the Thomas Center in Downtown Gainesville. It’s a great opportunity to network with local artists and innovators and brainstorm to identify creative activities you or your organization could host to get involved.
