About the Event
Each month one artist/creative will have the opportunity to present a work-in-progress idea, and gain feedback and interest from the group* - the idea can be of any creative discipline and the 30-minute session can include speaking, performing, presenting, or any other forms of sharing that can be accommodated in an enclosed space.
"There is a conversation in the room that only these people at this moment can have. Find it." - adrienne maree brown
5-6pm: Open time to talk; light refreshments will be served
6-6:30pm: Presenting Artist shares their work; group offers feedback
6:30-7pm: Group can decide to continue the conversation around the project; or resume open time to talk with fellow attendees
*If you wish to be a presenting artist, please email emilyarden[at]emilyardendesign[dot]com with 1) a brief description of your idea; 2) any plans you have to bring your idea into the world (if you're that far along); 3) links to social media and/or website.

Capacity is limited due to venue size, and also as a way to promote connection amongst attendees.
