The program is emcee’d by comedian Charlie Ballard, and coordinated by Janeen Antoine.

All young-at-heart creatives are invited to participate in art activities with artists Christy Galbadon with hand drilling beads, Kanyon Sayers-Roods making talking sticks, Celeste Aguilar making beaded bracelets, and Jeffrey Martinez making stamped prints.
