Thank you to everyone who joined us for Arts & Culture Network Night, in partnership with Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. More than 100 people attended the high-energy gathering meant to connect artists, folks from arts organizations and other community members throughout the county.
This was the first Arts & Culture Network Night of 2019, and we are happy to report that Arts & Culture Network Night will be back June 5, 2019!
Join us from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 5 at NewBridge Cleveland, 3634 Euclid Ave.
Parking in lot behind building and across the street at the Masonic Temple.
How does it work?
Using Neighbor Up practices, each Arts & Culture Network Night starts with “New & Good” where anyone can share something new or good happening in their lives. After a few people share their good news, the room buzzes with positive energy.
We then have “Business of the Network” when anyone in the room can propose a topic to discuss in small groups for about 20 minutes.
During the “Marketplace,” anyone can make a request for assistance or an offer.
We close the night with “Bumping & Sparking,” a time when participants can follow up with each other and make connections.
Read on for details from Arts & Culture Network Night at the Agora.
