Calling all organizers, members, friends, investors, supporters, and family members!
The monthly dinner withfriends is being graciously hosted by North Brooklyn Farms on Monday, July 30th!
Since January, we’ve been hosting monthly gatherings of the organizers behind some of the most exciting art spaces in New York. The most recent one on the Elsewhere Rooftop Deck was by far the biggest to date! They started as intimate dinners at Joe's loft, but 300+ people RSVP’d to this past one, and over 100 came to brainstorm about better ways to build sustainable culture in New York.
A highlight of some of the organizations whose members have been engaging in these discussions includes Babycastles, Brooklyn Kitchen, Brooklyn Spaces, Clocktower, Cloud City, Death By Audio Arcade, Ed Varie, Harvestworks, Elsewhere, Le Poisson Rouge, North Brooklyn Farms, Outpost Artists Resources, Powrplnt, Shea Stadium, Spectacle Theater, among many others. They're all struggling with the same issues, and would love for you to join in!
Think of it as a celebration and as a way for everyone to get to know the people they've been emailing all the time outside of the digital universe in a relaxed setting. And this time right by the river! Perfect summertime vibes.
