Hey everyone, I'm a MC grad who is now on the board of a non-profit called KnowHow Knoxville. We are having an art show at the Clayton Center to showcase the art of some of the youth with whom we work. If you have a few spare minutes today come by and see the show! I'll also be there talking about KnowHow Knoxville and the exciting programs we have going on working with youth at the intersection of creative and critical thinking. If you need volunteer hours for anything I can hook you up. Come and support youth arts!
