CREATIVE WORK SPACE:
Ready to Make the Leap?
Wednesday, July 21, 2010, 5:00 – 7:30 pm*
916 G Street, NW Washington, DC 20001
Are you outgrowing your home office? Ready for a legit mailing address for that upcoming grant application? Tired of having board meetings in your living room? Small arts organizations and creative businesses are always short on space – not to mention staff and money. Join Cultural Development Corporation (CuDC), Flashpoint and Source resident organizations and special guests for a discussion on creative, shared work space. Find out what you should know before you make the leap to a new space – and how being a part of a creative office environment can help increase your revenue and divide your work load.
Part I: Roundtable Discussion on Creative Work Space
What are the real benefits and challenges of a shared work space?
How can I make the move to a shared office?
What does Flashpoint have to offer?
What other resources are available to me?
Part II: Behind-the-Scenes tour of Flashpoint with resident organization Solas Nua
Part III: Flashpoint Incubator Open House: meet resident organizations, CuDC staff members and other creative entrepreneurs who are interested in shared work space. We will have ice cream (because it’s HOT outside) and beer (because – why not?).
*Bonus: Anyone who attends this event will receive one month free residency when they sign a year-long contract.
