[January 15, 2020]  LINCOLN - The Center for Creativity & Community will be hosting a youth gathering on January 20th from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. for fourth to eighth-graders to celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Through conversation and creative activities we will look at the arts that influenced the civil rights movement and invite youth to consider a cause they care about, creating their own art—through poetry, story, song, or symbol—to represent their cause.

The activity will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 301 Pekin Street in Lincoln.  Doors will open at 1:45 p.m.

Parents are asked to register their children by Jan 18th, by phone (217)732-6141 or email at  As with other youth events at The Center, this is free offering.
