The Pulse is gaining momentum!!! As many of you are aware, we had a bit of a shock last month when our first venue closed at the last minute. But, with hardship comes new opportunities...WE WILL BE MEETING AT THE AMATURO THEATRE LOBBY AREA ON THE UPPER LOBBY.
I don't know if I can put into words how excited I am about our new venue for our Creative Pulse event. I met yesterday with the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and they have graciously agreed to host our Creative Pulse networking event in the New River Room every fourth Wednesday of the month moving forward. What does this mean for SFAA and the local creative industries? The opportunities are endless. What a great thing to put on your biography...you were featured at the Creative Pulse event at the Center for Performing Arts! :-)
First, the room will have a stage for performances. We plan to have a featured performer monthly, in addition to also hosting a selected number of visual artists to display their work for the evening. There is also the possibility of moving the event out to the courtyard when weather permits. The success of this program depends on all of you. I don't think I can impress enough the need to have our members come out to support each other in this endeavor. A lot of you ask what you can do to help and get involved...this is it. Show up.
Rarely does a venue as important as the Performing Arts Center provide an opportunity such as this to local arts communities. Let's develop Creative Pulse into something that brings the arts and businesses together in one place.
Please be sure to RSVP on the site, and I'll see you there. There is no fee to attend, and there will be a cash bar.
We need your ideas to grow this event, this is a group effort to promote the local arts. Please be ready to meet new people, and be sure to bring any promotional materials (postcards, business cards, cd's of your music). We will have a separate table set up for information.
I will continue to say it....opportunities will happen, but you have GOT to show up!!!
See you at Creative Pulse, and please pass the word. This is open to everyone, with the intention to promote the creative fields.
