Meeting

ULTA - Tattoo Parlor

Illustrators Needed for Drawn on Fake Tattoos

NYC Creative Agency, Harley & Co. is looking to hire local artists to draw on fake tattoos in their custom Tattoo Parlor activation at ULTA's Beauty 2018 Conference. We would work directly with artists to create the tattoo designs and a 'flash sheet' for guests to pick from at the event. 


The event is on April 5th, during the day 11am - 4pm and will be highly attended with beauty stakeholders and ~1500 guests. We'd have a sign up process for the tattoos so it won't get too crazy. We are looking for two artists max. We'd really love to collaborate with local artists to make this a very cool event.

Please email Ryan Casucci at ryan@harleyandcompany.com with work examples and contact information.

delves into the intersection of the arts and green business.
 

“Homegrown: Green Innovation” is a free public event offering a
chance for guests to directly engage, network and show support to these
businesses, while getting a sneak peak at some of the latest and up-and-coming tech
being developed to minimize negative environmental impact. A brief panel will
also feature experts and founders who will talk about their work and the current
challenges startups face, including innovation in Houston. Topics such as how
creativity and the arts can collaborate with local green technology startups to
further green business and environmental initiatives will also be addressed.
 

Beer selections from Eureka Heights will also be available for
purchase by guests. Other items such as soft drinks and water will also be
available, while food will be offered for purchase via onsite food trucks.
 

Entry is free, though space is limited.

CRAFT SOCIAL: PROCRASTINATOR’S VALENTINE’S DAY

Did Valentine’s Day catch you by surprise this year?

Join HCCC for “Procrastinator’s Valentine’s Day” at this month’s Craft Social. Learn how to make a whimsical pop-up Valentine, and discover the history of Valentine’s Day cards from Houston-based writer Liana Silva.  Liana will also assist you with your most difficult romantic quandaries and offer witty insights and humorous advice about a variety of relationship issues. (This will not be your typical “Dear Abby”-style advice!)

Don’t leave empty handed—emboss a copper pendant or key chain with initials or a personalized message to give to your special someone or keep for yourself!

About Liana Silver
Liana Silva is a writer, editor, and high-school teacher. She considers herself a New Yorker by birth, Puerto Rican by circumstance, and Houstonian by fate. Her current project, always on her mind, is a collection of personal essays about postcards and home. Read more about Liana here.

About Craft Social

Community Collaboration Project (For The General Public)


Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. 
Stages Theatre, 3201 Allen Parkway, Suite 101. 

Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) is pleased to announce the next steps in the implementation of Houston’s Arts + Cultural Plan. HAA has been working closely with the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (MOCA) and cultural planning expert, Margie Johnson Reese of MJR Partners, to create grants services that are more flexible and responsive to your needs.

Your ideas and recommendations in this phase are critical to Advancing Houston’s Arts + Cultural Plan.

Please join HAA grants staff, artists, arts leaders, other grantees, and consultant, Margie Johnson Reese of MJR Partners for a series of conversations.

The purpose of these meetings is three-fold:
- To learn about the challenges and opportunities that you experience in accessing HAA’s grant programs
- To hear your ideas for broadening HAA’s programs and services for artists, arts education providers, arts organizations, and non-arts organizations providing arts programming.
- To ask your advice on how best to reach a broader and more diverse cross-section of our community using the arts as a catalyst for collaboration and cultural exchange.

We recognize that there have been many conversations over the past two years about local support for the arts and artists in Houston. Our goal is to ensure that Advancing Houston’s Arts + Cultural Plan is launched in 2017 with practical measures and actions for success.

For more immediate information regarding HAA or the purpose of these important meetings, please do not hesitate to contact HAA at grants@haatx.com or 713.527.9330.
