Fourth Arts Block Hosts Meet and Greet

Fourth Arts Block is playing a more and more active role in supporting indie theater in the East Village. I got this invite from Lauren Parrish, their Special Projects Coordinator, and pass it on to interested individuals:

Please join Fourth Arts Block and the Third Street Music School Settlement for another meet and greet of the arts & non-profit professionals in the East Village*. We got together almost a month ago and there were great conversations, ideas, and drinks to be had, so let's do it again. We will be congregating at Jimmy's No. 43 on Monday, February 23, 2009 from 6:00PM to 7:30PM.

Let's review the details below and answer a few key questions...

WHO'S INVITED: Arts professionals who work in the East Village*, local professionals in any kind of non-profit, artists who also administer/produce arts activities, and interested friends. If you came last time, make sure to bring someone new!

WHAT: An informal get-together for local arts professionals to meet each other, share info and exchange ideas.

WHERE: Jimmy's No. 43, 43 East 7th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Aves.)Downstairs - you will find us at a large table near the back.

WHY: Well there are a lot of Why's to be asked. For example:1) Why the East Village? 2) Why just arts professionals? These answers are easy: 1) The East Village is home to many arts groups, but no centralized body that builds partnerships and visibility. 2) We all could get a lot out of knowing about and of each other, from partnerships to a great conversation.

COST: No entrance fee. Cash bar.

* If you are asking "Am I in the East Village?" there is an easy way to find out. If you are located, work, or primarily present arts events south of 14th Street, north of Houston, and east from Broadway to the river, then yes, you are in the East Village.
