A note: there are three versions of this flyer because they were created as a special project by three of our In-Community Treatment/Community Based School students. ICTP/CBS currently works with instructors from Twiddle Productions to learn graphic design skills. The students took on creating their own flyers for this event as a way to use their skills for a “real world” project. Mahalo to ICTP/CBS for their creativity!
