We want to encourage people to create in their homes or at work all throughout the year and connect online using #352Creates. You can be creative wherever you are, whenever you want. Show us how you Create in Place, whether it be posting a picture of a meal you cooked or a doodle you made at work, the possibilities for creativity are endless! You don’t have to consider yourself an artist to be creative. We love to see how you create. Don’t forget to add #352Creates to your social media posts.
352Creates is a movement and doesn’t have a specific location — so it can happen anywhere in the 352 area code. At home, work, your favorite coffee shop, art galleries, hospitals, in your car, at the park, on a walk. Everywhere. Get creative!
