Networking for Artists, Arts Groups

Networking at Florida Museum of Photographic Arts

Chuck Close Exhibition at Florida Museum of Photographic Art

We invite artists of all disciplines and cultural organizations to join us for networking. It’s a chance to hear more about the fantastic arts organizations that are working to bring the arts in Hillsborough County alive. We visit a different nonprofit arts group each month to see it up close and personal.

Our Arts Networking meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of the month and last about one hour. Meeting times will vary depending on the host’s schedule.  (Sign up for our email list to get word of our next meeting.)

April Networking

Everyone gets a chance to introduce themselves and we encourage you to bring business cards, promotional flyers, or brochures to exchange and spread the word about the good work you’re doing. This great for social and professional networking.

These get-togethers tend to be small- to medium-size groups which makes it easier to get to know each other. Not everyone makes it to each meeting and that’s ok. Feel free to drop in any month. Because attendance varies, there’s a good chance you’ll see people you haven’t met before.
