**NOTE THAT WE HAVE A 48-PERSON LIMIT FOR TANGIBLE POSSIBILITY** Please show up on time! Those who arrive after 48 people will be able to enjoy the talks, but we sadly won't have room for you for the playful speed-dating.

Join us for an playful take on speed-dating this February!

Lea Redmond (https://twitter.com/Lea_Redmond)will share "Tangible Possibility," a creative and fun way to meet new people. Tangible Possibility is a friendly, light-hearted structure of whimsical, hands-on, get-to-know-you activities designed to draw out one’s true self, reveal a little bit of it to the other folks in the room, and help you find awesome new friends, colleagues, or romantic partners. You'll share memories of elementary school via paper airplanes, talk about your favorite book till the hourglass runs out, interpret Rorschach inkblots and sketch your dream homes.
