Find out how you can get involved with the Creative City Project at Avalon Island Thursday


If a passion for the performing and visual arts runs through your veins, then we think the Creative City Project is calling your name. The movement began in 2012 when a group of artists made it their mission to liven up the streets of Downtown Orlando. Their big to-do is a large annual arts event that takes place each fall. This year, in addition to performances by Cirque du Soleil, the Orlando Ballet and a 1,000-member marching band, Creative City Project is calling local artists (hey, you!) to show off their talents at the October event. Head to the Gallery at Avalon Island to gather with fellow musicians, dancers, visual artists and art organizations and learn how you can enrich the arts scene together this fall.

7 p.m. Thursday, July 9 | The Gallery at Avalon Island, 39 S. Magnolia Ave. | | free
