RocGrowth Candids

July 11, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

RocGrowth Candids is a bi-monthly event featuring regional entrepreneurs share their personal stories and the lessons they’ve learned building successful businesses. We also feature innovative leaders who impact our community’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Recognizing the co-existence of a healthy creative class with a vibrant entrepreneurial environment, we are launching a series that will feature Innovation in the Arts! This will include the visual, culinary, theatrical, musical and performing arts.

On Wednesday, July 11th, we will host some of our area’s most significant contributors to the visual arts. The esteemed director of the Memorial Art Gallery (MAG), Jonathan Binstock, will moderate a panel that includes Bleu Cease, director of the internationally recognized Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo), K.C. Sullivan, co-founder and director of UUU Art Collective and noted and distinctive artist, Sarah Rutherford.

This discussion celebrates the relationship between art and entrepreneurship and demonstrates that Rochester continues to be very much at the forefront of artistic innovation.

We start and finish with informal kibitzing over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. As usual, we open with a brief performance by a local artist. In between, we conduct an open interview, followed by Q&A, with our featured guests. Event is free, but attendance is limited to the first 100 RSVPs. Register soon since the events “sell out.”

The event is free, thanks to our sponsor, Complemar. We humbly request a $5 donation to our host, the non-profit Downstairs Cabaret Theatre.

We look forward to seeing you there!
