Creative Cocktail Hour

 

Creative Cocktail Hour is always an inspiring and unique event filled with an invigorating cross section of people. I’m continually surprised, warmed and sparked by my encounters with, and conversations about art, music and film. I appreciate the expanded and inclusive community.” – Maggie Nowinski, Interdisciplinary Artist

Creative Cocktail Hour represents the best of Real Art Ways. For 16 years we’ve gathered on the third Thursday of every month to celebrate people. Why do we do this? It’s simple: our community inspires us.

Each month we ask:
“What interesting things are happening out there? Who can we bring together?”

We delve into a real process with real people to ignite meaningful collaboration. We create a space for people to be recognized, welcomed and supported. People make deep and enduring connections here.

Every month we present local, national and international artists, creative leaders, and visionaries who share their gifts and talents. From performances, readings and storytelling to local food, live music and dancing, Creative Cocktail Hour is a night of excitement and celebration.

Everyone is welcome! All ages, all backgrounds.
