About the speaker
Join us for an online conversation with Lisa Congdon about being creative during a time when we’re all experiencing unknowns and uncertainty.
Known as much for her colorful, graphic drawings as for her wisdom around maintaining a healthy creative practice, we could think of no one better to chat with this month. We’ll have time for Q&A so bring your questions for her.
We’ll also give you an opportunity to win some coffee before the event! Follow @Portland_CM on Instagram so you don’t miss out.
