I must say I’ve never been more proud to be affiliated with a church like this. I started going last year December, joined this year in June and to even be at an event with church other than a Sunday is huge for me.
The event was created as a creative space where urban professionals representing disciplines and areas of expertise could meet and share career insight. The event was to provide an opportunity for direct ideas into a field interest in the professional world within a comfortable setting. Sounds great right? Well, it was.
Featured networkers were stationed with their bio for the “networkees” to rotate around and exchange information about themselves in five minutes intervals, hence the speed networking detail. And yes they had a bell which definitely brought back some memories but maintained order.
The event was located at Image Nation Raw Space in Harlem and this space was beautiful. Displaying local and international art work while providing multimedia about the space and how it is used. Eventually after construction, the Raw Space will be turned into a Solar Cinema that will boast a social atmosphere and serve as a beacon for like-minded individuals who seek progressive cinema and music that highlight the humanity of Black people worldwide.
All things great!
There were so many awesome people that makes it almost impossible to highlight everyone but I will mention Toy Holmes, Aurelia Michael, and Chyann Sapp for their awesome energy and perseverance to do what they love to do! They were a few of the featured networkers there with words that definitely inspired me to continue doing what I do.
I want to give a huge shout out to Alexis Flakes(HOWARD U love) and Sherlly Pierre the cofounders of the event. For more information about the church and Young Adult Ministry, feel free to check the links 🙂
