This should be a great discussion of some very cool projects that have sprung up in KC over the past year. Heidi Van is a stalwart of the local arts scene with multiple Kickstarter successes and, on the eve of this year’s Fringe Festival, will talk about how Fringe and social media elevate collaborate for the arts. Jeremy Fuksa is a local adman and SMCKC member who produces a video podcast, The Cocktail Napkin, a periodical of uncurbed ideas. Renee Kloeblen has turned her cupcake business from an idea to a food truck to a Westport storefront by leveraging the power of the Internet. And Mike Reinhardt and Nate Watson will be in the final push for funding for an “artistic nanobrewery.” (And with any luck, they’ll bring some product to sample!)
Come hear about the creative process, entrepeneurship, social funding, cupcakes and beer, and Fringe Festival. The event is July 20th, 5:30-7:30. $5 at the door, drinks, snacks, and entertainment.
