The York Region Arts Council is excited to be hosting the YRAC Members Social; a networking evening for our YRAC members and past program participants during Global Entrepreneurship Week! Join us for an evening of food, drinks, and connections with other local artists in York Region. This is a free social event for artists to meet one another and to get to know each other in the community a little more. YRAC wishes to promote community engagement, collaboration between artists, and lasting connections. We want to recognize and appreciate the wonderful artists and entrepreneurs we have in our art community and those who have graduated from our programs. We are so excited to host like-minded artists and creatives for this social event.
What is Global Entrepreneurship Week?
It’s a week to celebrate the success and work of leaders and creators who develop innovative ideas and startups to better our economy and impact within our communities. Global Entrepreneurship Week inspires people locally, nationally, and globally to recognize our entrepreneurs and to inspire others to create and innovate new potential ideas.
Please note light refreshments and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided, the menu and bar are available for attendees to purchase additional items as they would like.
We look forward to seeing you there!
