Arts Council to Host 2017 Arts Mixer at STEAM Factory

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Greater Columbus Arts Council (Arts Council) is hosting a networking opportunity to encourage cross-discipline engagement within the arts community on Wednesday, Apr. 26 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Arts Mixer 2017: Stop, Collaborate and Listen will take place at the STEAM Factory at 400 W. Rich artist studios in Franklinton.

The mixer is to help provide artists and organizations opportunities to meet fellow artists outside their discipline or role. The goal is to foster collaboration between individual artists, staff at arts organizations, arts advocates, Arts Council staff and board members, and community leaders.

The free-form event will encourage guests to interact with others through collaborative art activities, conversation prompts and prizes. Guests will receive a map identifying what’s happening in the space and are invited to enjoy light refreshments.
