What’s Next? Creating Community
Oct 23, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| Free
Instructors, members, students, staff and others comprising the community formerly known as 3rd Ward are invited to The Brooklyn Brewery’s Tasting Room for an informal networking mixer
Speakers include former instructors Launa Eddy, Ryan O’Connor and Victoria Valencia; attorney Genan Zilkha will offer advice on starting new businesses and Theresa Buchheister will talk about how resources are shared by members of Silent Barn. Two speakers will address initiatives that directly support students and teachers: CourseHorse, offering credit to students who bought 3rd Ward classes through its site, and Instructor Matchmaking service, Brooklyn Brainery’s project to connect instructors and classrooms.
Throughout the free event, representatives from up to 20 area learning communities, art spaces, maker and coworking spaces will be introduced and identified, so you can connect according to your own interests.
