I believe in making things (films! plays! poems! stories!) and putting them into the world. Here's where you can find them:


Wednesday, February 12, 6:30-8:30pm

A-Mill Artist Lofts-Warehouse, 400 2nd St. SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414

A new interactive series hosted by Maria Vorhis and Erik van Mechelen featuring 2 creative workshops + 3 open mic slots + lots of wine and cheese! 

While other events focus on product, at TestKitchen we’re all about the creative process. How is that “sausage” really made? How can you be inspired to “cook” something yourself? Our goal is to serve up sessions that leave your creative soul (and belly!) well-fed.
