Get creative at the interactive, improvisational art Task Party that is geared to get you out into the community to create. Drop by the Creative Access Arts Center, 500 S. 8th St., and draw a creative task from the box and get going. It can be anything from writing a poem and performing it to decorating a public space. There will be supplies on hand. Before you set off, write another task and place it in the box for someone else. Learn more and pre-register at TaskBoise.IPULIdaho.org, or just show up.
