In the spirit of the creative process that is Arcosanti, the public is invited to attend two Conversations on Creativity with three artists at Arcosanti.  The performers will discuss elements of Italian Music and Theater that will be featured in the Italian Night on Saturday, July 20,

How we experience a “place” is essential to our own creativity.  Paolo Soleri has said: “Arcosanti’s structure is a large instrument for investigation and performance in the multi media field that will take constant and attentive stock of the originating elements of nature. Spectators will be pulled in by the unpredictability, the magnitude, the power of images, sounds, structures...a unified creative process. The audience will become part of the performance.”
