The YES! House is a radically welcoming, creative community gathering space in downtown Granite Falls. Get a tour from Ashley Hanson (theatre artist, community builder, Obama Fellow, Bush Fellow, Placebase Productions director, Department of Public Transformation founder, and more). Learn about plans for an artist-in-residence program in the space and how this model can build rural communities.
Their mission is to create a space where community, creativity, and history collide with quality beverages and food.
SMAC will provide supper and some small group networking opportunities. The conversations with other artists are often ones that fuel your passion, provide insight and growth and allow you to make connections that launch creative opportunities.
