Networking Recess: An Artful Departure from Business as Usual

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

re·cess /ˈrēˌses/ n. (American Heritage Dictionary)
1. A temporary cessation of the customary activities of an engagement, occupation, or pursuit.
2. A remote, secret, or secluded place. Often used in the plural.
Whether it's March's legislative recess, kickball after lunch, or hiding away in a "remote, secret, or secluded place," we could all use a break from the daily grind every now and then. Networking is no exception. While typically well-intentioned, it can be awkward, exhausting, and completely superficial. But how do we push past that to reclaim and redefine the term?

Join YNPN Twin Cities on April 30 as we set aside our business cards and approach networking as a way to connect with purpose. Using elements from Give and Take, we'll play show and tell – giving you the time, space, and structure to share your passions and network in a more meaningful way.

Our interactions on the 30th will center around two questions: What do you know? What do you want to know? We'll ask you to answer these questions when you register, and hope you will reflect between now and the 30th on what you're bringing and looking for from this program.

Our recess will be hosted at Public Functionary, a new art space in Northeast Minneapolis. Mingle, play, and check out their inaugural exhibit DZINE: Victory featuring the work of Chicago-based Puerto Rican artist, Carlos Rolon. We'll leave Networking Recess having seen some incredible art, and knowing much more about our fellow attendees than their job title and place of employment.
