If you’re between 11 and 18, you’re invited to join us for a fantasy-filled RPG afternoon! Sign-up to explore the world of tabletop RPGs guided by Marcus deLemos. We’ll provide you with everything you need (including refreshments for our long journey), and all you need to bring is your sense of adventure!
Led by our spirited visionary dungeonmaster, Asa B., this game will challenge you to use every wit in your wizardly (or elfin. Or trollish) bag of tricks. See you there! Join any time, just please be sure to register before you come.
Join us as we honor the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the intersection of creativity and community. Celebrate this monumental day by centering Dr. King’s values of equality, freedom and civic inclusion. Through performances, workshops and art making, PEM invites visitors to reflect on the progress we have made in our communities – and the work that remains as we strive for a more just society.
