Ignite! Peoria Seeks to Spark Creativity This Weekend

We're joined this week by Kelleen Nitsche and Joe Spanier, to talk about Ignite! Peoria. The annual event spotlights the range of artistic and creative opportunities in central Illinois. Along with booths for artists and performing groups, the event includes two stages with performances throughout the day; and creation stations, where attendees can engage in hands-on activities.

Once again, Ignite! features the Midwest MakerFest, demonstrating the link between the creative arts and applied science and technology. A new addition this year is a series of workshops to help aspiring musicians, dancers and writers.

Ignite! Peoria runs tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Peoria Civic Center.
