ArtServe is proud to announce the launch of its Changemaker Circle, a new monthly networking and strategic planning series for artists, entrepreneurs, creative professionals, service leaders and changemakers who are interested in making a positive and powerful difference in the community through the arts.
The inaugural session of the Changemaker Circle takes place on Friday, May 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at ArtServe, 1350 E. Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Future events take place at 6:30 p.m. on the third Friday of every month until the end of the year. Those dates are June 21, July 19, August 16, September 20, October 18, November 15 and December 20. ArtServe is located at 1350 E. Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale.
Participants of the Changemaker Circle should have a deep interest in using the arts to impact areas of equity, public education, health and human services and/or social change. Initially, the series will be moderated by Johnson with the ultimate goal of cultivating sub-groups of like-minded peers who will lead their own initiatives.
In collaboration with each project group, ArtServe will utilize its expertise and experience to secure funding and resources to allow projects to take shape. From research and development to production and implementation, ArtServe will endorse projects that benefit the community and align with its mission of supporting creative professionals and fostering social change.
To join the first session of the Changemaker Circle, RSVP by emailing CraigWJ@artserve.org. In accordance with its goal of building a forward-thinking community, there will be a potluck for participants interested in bringing items for their peers.
