Indy Arts & Media Event in Berkeley on Sept. 25

Dear readers,

Usually the HarriOak News tries to focus on events in our neighborhood, but we are making an exception for this Indy Arts & Media Event. Indy Arts is a big supporter of local artists and media makers and this event is just a short bike ride (or BART ride) away. Here is a message from Clarissa Morales Roberts, the executive director:

Dear Artists and Culture Makers and Innovators,

Greetings! I would like to take this opportunity to extend a very special invitation to an event this Friday, September 25th from 12:00N to 7:00PM at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, California, just steps from BART!

As part of our 10th Annual Expo for Independent Arts, Independent Arts & Media is very excited to present our first Symposium for Artists, a day of Workshops, Panel Discussions, Networking & Collaboration. This event has a sliding scale and was created specifically with the independent artist and culture makers in mind! No one will be turned away for inability to pay!

Our Panel Discussions will cover the State of the Arts, Arts Funding, Issues for the Working Artist, and Community 2.0 - How Artists can capitalize on Social Media. In addition we will have numerous workshops that cover Marketing, Events, Fund Development and even Elevator Pitches in a real Elevator!

Please join us in Berkeley this Friday. Detailed information is available on the Indy Arts website; all links are listed below. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or require additional information. We truly hope to see you there.

Also, as mentioned before, the Symposium is part of our larger Expo for Independent Arts in Golden Gate Park on Saturday September 26th from 11:00AM to 6:00PM. The Expo is like a giant Show and Tell where we get to showcase the amazing melange of Bay Area arts and culture. This year's event is sure to be amazing with the addition of the Four Corners Mural Project, our annual Performance Showcase and 5000 friends you never knew you had! This event is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted!
