BR: Creative Connect 1/30/18

Creative Connect, a monthly meet up hosted by The Parlor and NOVAC:BR, exists to create a space for the Louisiana creative community to be inspired to dream bigger and execute projects together.

The Parlor is located at 705 St. Joseph St, Baton Rouge. Creative Connect is every last Tuesday of the month. As always, we provide free beverages and good company. For more information or to be considered for future presentations, please email jillian@novacvideo.org.

This month on Tuesday 1/30 from 7pm-9pm, local photographer, Lily Brooks will join us to share her work. She will bring her large format film camera and samples of her latest photography project dealing with our relationship to weather, as well as discuss her creative process and past projects.
