Seeking submissions from members of the creative community for a publication about exhibitions, shows, gigs or concerts that fundamentally broadened your horizons of what art, music or creative expression can be and do.
I want to hear about a show that changed your thought processes forever, that set you on a path of artistic growth, or that opened your eyes to a whole new way of seeing. I want to hear about the way it made you feel, what it inspired you to create, or simply about what it was.
