Mix and mingle with local creatives at the first-ever ARTS Social Mixer, happening at Sharespace on Friday, August 12, 2016.

August’s big social gathering will be a place to mix, mingle, and network with Houston’s creative class in a spirited EaDo setting. Not your average networking event, the ARTS Social Mixer invites attendees to participate in enticing social games in effort of getting people talking and making lasting creative connections.

Crafted for local creative professionals, the gathering will welcome designers, photographers, models, makeup artists, hair stylists, singers, dancers, painters, directors, and anyone who simply must create in the Metropolitan Houston area.

With games, an art contest, a swag bag filled with goodies, drinks, light bites, and other surprises, the evening shindig presented by GIMO Studios and designed by ELYN X Productions will be chock-full of creative revelry and connections.

The event is sponsored by Karbach Brewing Co. with support from contributors JoMar Visions, Ausomm Kustumz, and GIMO Studios.

A signature component of the evening will be the art contest itself, which will be voted on by attendees during the party.  

With an admission ticket purchased, every artist is invited to submit an original piece of artwork into the competition, which will be eligible to win a cash prize up to $1,000.

The ARTS Social Mixer Contest is open to all of the arts, including visual arts, music, fashion, photography, film, makeup, writing, dance and more.
