New Meetup: Getting-Down-to-Business Transition

Announcing a new Meetup for Oak Park Writers, Artists & Musicians!

What: Getting-Down-to-Business Transition

When: September 1,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $1.00 per person

16th Street
Oakbrook Terrace, IL

We're making a transition . . . a few, in fact.

First: A new Organizer. Phyllis, who has been a member for some time and a regular attendee, is taking over.

Second: A new primary location. The main meetings will be in Oak Brook (actually Oakbrook Terrace), at the Border's just north of the Oak Brook Mall, on 16th Street. With that in mind, we are renaming the group to the West Suburban Artists, Writers & Musicians Group.

Third: New purpose for the group. We are aiming to make this a group for Writers, Artists & Musicians who are active, who want to work on their art and get feedback and encouragement from other artists doing the same. (We're including a nominal $1 to attend to help defray the Organizer's costs and effort.)

For those in the group wedded to Oak Park and vicinity, we hope you'll stay on and join us. For the numerous members farther west in the suburbs, this gets it closer to you.

Here's the plan for how the group will work: Leading up to each meeting, members will post or otherwise share a sample of their work -- visual, written, or audible.

We aren't saying you have to submit a sample to attend each time, but you're encouraged to be a regular contributor and encouraged to look at what people have submitted before the meeting and be ready with your thoughts.

From here, all sorts of things can happen. . . . Artists Unblocking Sessions, collaborations, exhibitions, whatever.
