Create.Innovate.Repe­at 2.0

Hosted by the Institute For Arts Entrepreneurship.

Co-Sponsored by IAEOU, Power Professionals Networking, and Identity Engineers

Connect yourself with other local artists, entrepreneurs, small businesses, freelancers, local service providers, and creative & talented individuals who might be of service in helping you realize your next big idea.

Throughout the night, a small group of local artists and business owners will get up and share their current projects and ways you can get involved. Our format is inspired by the popular PechaKucha networking nights. We are not your traditional networking event!

Doors open at 6pm.

Speakers & Networking kick off at 6:15/6:30pm.

In between speakers, we will take 10-15 minute intervals to network & socialize!

The event will wrap up between 9-9:30pm.

We have 12 speakers confirmed!

We are looking for 3-5 more speakers!

If you are interested in being a speaker, please email:

[masked] or [masked]

Would you like to speak? You'll have ten slides and five minutes (there IS a gong, so be warned) to share your art, your business, or just a cool idea for the community that you think is worth putting out into the world.

This event was designed to help connect you to new resources to help your ideas grow.

We will be offering free light refreshments, and home-made budget delights by Scent of Grace, founder T'wanna Walker:


Beef Short Ribs

Grilled Chicken

Vegetarian Style

Light Refreshments:

Wine, Beer, Water, & Fruit Water

    I'm doing a presentation of my astroGizmo ... if anyone wants to volunteer and have their Gizmo (this is one of 64 possible variations of a simplified horoscope, it has a 1:1 relationship w/the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching & both are very graphic & have readable compatibility factors built in) worked in to my presentation -- get a hold of me this weekend ... [masked] ... send me your phone # and a good time to call you, or send me your birthdate, time place, and name you want (it's a nametag -- no more than 12 letters) on your Gizmo
