July Artist Happy Hour: Artist Spaces at the Crawlspace Comedy Theatre
- This event has passed.
Having a safe, accessible, and collaborative space is paramount to the creativity, productivity, and overall success of working artists. Kalamazoo is home to an abundance of space-makers, and we’re featuring many of them, some brand-new and some well-established, as a part of this panelist discussion. Attendees will have the chance to learn more about these spaces and opportunities directly from the people cultivating them. Additionally, the networking segment will allow Arts Council Members, Artists, Organizations and Space-Makers to connect with each other directly.
The panelists are Dann Sytsma, Board President of the KNAC, Kimberly Guess, owner of The Xperience Event Center, Matthew Schmidt, owner of The Wax Factory, Krystal & Jeb Gast, owners of Jerico and Start Here Coffee, and Kim Shaw, artist, and resident of Jerico.
This one-of-a-kind event will take place at the Crawlspace Comedy Theatre, located in the Kalamazoo Non-Profit Advocacy Coalition Building, a 168-year-old church-turned-into-hub for non-profits and community groups, located right downtown Kalamazoo at 315 W Michigan Ave, Kalamazoo, MI 49007. Complimentary food and drinks provided. Event is free to attend, but registration is required.
