If you qualify for the study, health and cognitive screenings will be provided at no cost. You may also qualify for a free 4-week supply of creatine supplements. Supplies are limited so act quickly.

By setting up a temporary art studio space at the Hand Art Center, Anni will work with students, staff and members of the general public to explore what it means to speak more than one language. Participants will take part in a basic survey that collects information about which languages they speak, which languages they would like their own kids to speak and which colors they associate with these languages. Following, survey participants will be invited to create a unique rug using their individualized language color schemes. Once complete, the rugs will be displayed in the Carlton Union Building for the remainder of the exhibition. Participants will be able to claim their rug to keep upon conclusion of the exhibit.
