CCEC is proud to have been chosen as NECTAR's highlighted non-profit for their forum on Council and Relationships, which took place on Saturday, March 19, 2011 at Yoga Soup. NECTAR, led by Artistic Director Cybil Gilbertson, is a professional level artists' forum highlighting relevant social themes through the Arts and Education. A specific non-profit is highlighted and a portion of the proceeds goes directly to support their work.
CCEC Co-Directors Patricia Cooper and Mariela Marin presented CCEC: who we are, what we do, how we are available to the community, and to help de-mystify "therapy." Guests were invited to express their feelings and musing on a number of subjects on an interactive writing wall.
We are very grateful to Cybil and the NECTAR artists (which included two of our staff: Nicole Helton and Timothy Tillman) for the chance to experience creatively compelling performances, for NECTAR's generosity in donating some of the proceeds of the evening, and for the opportunity to reach out into a new population of our wonderful community.
