MENOMONIE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – One local business created an open space for artists to share ideas and collaborate. Soul and Synergy hosted its first Creative Spirit event.

Artists were able to bring a project they were working on anything ranging from fine arts to creative writing. The artists then gave feedback and advice to each other.

Melanie Ceraso, an employee at Soul and Synergy says the space is meant to be a judgment-free zone for local artists to share thoughts and ideas, “It’s actually pretty casual. I think it’s just about creating the space people can bring a snack to share or not and just kind of form, we’re hoping to kind of build a community around, I think, intentional creativity and just to reach out and bond with each other.”

This event is open to the public and will be recurring on the 1st Sunday of each month.
