Please join us for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, March 1 from 5:00 to 8:00pm for a community building happy hour!
As a part of the New Pathways for the Arts | Houston, Incubating Innovation program, Writers in the Schools, DiverseWorks, and Fresh Arts are participating in a week-long intensive retreat to prototype new ideas. Join us mid-week to hear about our prototyping process as part of the work we're doing in the Houston arts community!
So enjoy a drink or two, meet the Incubating Innovation participants and learn about the work they are doing in the Houston arts community-- Writers in the Schools, DiverseWorks, and Fresh Arts-- and take-in Boheme's bohemian atmosphere! The proceeds from the evening will support the Harvey Arts Recovery Fund so don't be shy, raise a glass (or three) while raising funds for an important cause.
About the Harvey Arts Recovery Fund:
The Harvey Arts Recovery supports the disaster recovery needs of the Greater Houston arts, culture, and creative community in our 10-county region. As a collaborative effort of Houston's arts services sector, our focus is on aiding individual artists and rebuilding and restoring smaller arts and culture nonprofits by providing them with recovery and funding information. Harvey Arts Recovery is also gathering data from artists and nonprofits who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey in order to request funding from national art funders, and advocate for disaster recovery laws to be more favorable to the arts.
