"Reclaiming Our Time: The Power of Purpose & Community Building As Creators"

Auntie Maxine Waters blessed us all with a reminder on the importance of "reclaiming my time" in public spaces. But what about in our personal lives? Professional lives? Business?

IAAC will host our first in-person event -- a salon-style discussion with other Creators of Color about how we can reclaim our minds, bodies, and spirit for the benefit of ourselves and our community. Light refreshments will be served. Come for the great views, stay for the good people and creative inspiration!
