Call­ing All Artists; Town­ship­pers’ Schmoozer Re­turns!

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Stanstead

Artist­who paint, sculpt, write or sing, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween, won’t want to miss the chance to grow their cul­tural net­work at a free ELAN Schmoozer, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oc­to­ber 13, 2012, at Cafe Bar Sans Fron­tieres (for­merly known as Check­point Char­lie’s), on 240 Rue Duf­ferin in Stanstead.

Open to all Town­ships artists, these net­work­ing schmooz­ers are hosted reg­u­larly by the English Lan­guage Arts Net­work (ELAN) giv­ing both ELAN mem­ber and non-mem­ber artists a chance to make new con­nec­tions and catch up with old friends! In a re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment, artists will shuf­fle tables in or­der to meet ev­ery­one with­out the pres­sure of think­ing up a bunch of suave con­ver­sa­tion-starters.

Artists are in­vited to ex­tend their evening en­joy­ment with a concert by singer-song­writer Matthew McCully at the Haskell Free Li­brary in Stanstead at 7 p.m. For his last concert on the Her­itage Tour, Matthew McCully has in­vited U.S. singer Emily Ny­man to join him. En­try on do­na­tion. The Her­itage Tour is sup­ported by Arts & Community Cul­ture On-the-Road (AC­CORD ) a project made pos­si­ble through the sup­port of ELAN and the Depart­ment of Cana­dian Her­itage.

It’s at free schmooz­ers such as this one, which took place in North Hat­ley in 2010, that artists of all kinds can ex­pand their net­works over a meet and greet. The schmooz­ers have re­turned with the next one tak­ing place on Oc­to­ber 13th at Cafe Bar Sans Fron­tieres in Stanstead fol­lowed by a concert, en­trance on do­na­tion, at the nearby Haskell Opera House.
