July 25, 2023 – Creative Changemakers – Minneapolis, Minnesota

Join A Peace of My Mind‘s John Noltner for the second session of our Creative Changemakers series. We will welcome Minneapolis-based spoken word artist Joe Davis to the stage. It will be a rich evening as Joe shares some of his music and spoken word poetry that is centered in his practice of radical joy. Afterward, John and Joe will share the stage for a conversation about what inspires and motivates his work and perhaps shares a little wisdom on how to tap into that notion of radical joy for yourself. There will be light snacks and beverages on hand. Tickets are free, required, and will sell out quickly, so register soon and we will look forward to seeing you. Get more details and your tickets here.
