Greetings everyone. Many of you who have been to one of our meetups in the past year or so have been hearing me talk about "rebooting" this meetup for designers and artists. Well I'm finally making it happen this month. The new name for our group will be the Austin Design and Visual Arts Network... ADVAnet for short.
The change in the group won't be a huge leap. The previous daytime meetings called "Artists' Alliance" will have the same name as our evening meetings, so it won't look like two different groups. They'll just be differentiated as the "Day Series" and the "Night Series". As for the content and direction of the group, we'll be focusing more tightly on graphic design and visual arts for print and digital media.
I just wanted to give everyone a heads up so that when you receive future emails from [ADVAnet], you don't get caught unawares about what group you're part of. You'll get your first email with the new name Wednesday afternoon, which will be a reminder about our Happy Hour Launch meetup on Thursday evening (July 5th at 6:30pm) at Halcyon downtown, where this group started in 2003. Come join us and meet your fellow designers and artists!
