Say Yes Fest Closing Celebration + RE:CLAIM After Party + Silent Disco: Express Your Yes and CultureVerse
CultureVerse + Express Your Yes Foundation + NOW Studios + RE:CLAIM + Petals Sandcastle are pleased to invite you to an enchanting, provocative evening of dreams & drama... art, ideas, & possibility !
In a world at siege ––divided into brutally savage us-versus-them binaries -–community, creativity, love, laughter, peace, play, justice, authentic connection, music, dancing, drag queens, and maybe a few cocktails –– are needed now more than ever!
We're rolling so much YES into one evening - so let's break it down!
1) Closing Party for Say Yes Fest and the multimodal immersive exhibition of Petals Sandcastle at CultureVerse! Say Yes Fest was birthed in a desire to make fabulous, provocative FREE events and space for our community to come together to play and dream and build and learn and grow and connect and really see and feel and hear each other in order to engage in a collectively cultivated, creative-centric community conversation.

The collective momentum of RE:CLAIM seeks to honor creative visions for community wellness while acknowledging the impact the criminal legal system has on all of us. visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/reclaim-tickets-412906944787 to learn more!

Something to chew on...
What if we were ALL free? All empowered and safe and seen? Loved and looked after? What if we truly were One Nation, Undivided? Is this possible? Do we even want it? How do we shingle a single roof above our overlapping dreams and persecution?
Maybe creation is war's kryptonite. Maybe we're here to transmute the grief into gasoline for a brighter collective blaze. maybe Love WINS! Come play! Eyes open! Ready to be alive! To think and feel and surrender to fully being human in this life.CultureVerse, 309 S Main St, Ann Arbor. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/say-yes-fest-closing-celebration-reclaim-after-party-silent-disco-tickets-426763871227?utm-campaign=social&utm-content=attendeeshare&utm-medium=discovery&utm-term=listing&utm-source=cp&aff=escb.
