Please join us for Blank Canvas Project Convenings. 

Blank Canvas Project convenings are a chance to gather in person to discuss a particular aspect of envisioning how to build the best possible fringe festival for New York City. All of the convenings will be held at our offices at 518 East 6th Street (between Avenue A and Avenue B) in Manhattan unless otherwise indicated. 

TOPICS – we’ll announce topics for each convening. Each night will feature both structured conversation as well as some “open space” time for side conversations on the topic. Please try to be “up to date” on relevant blog posts on the topic prior to joining a convening.

DOORS OPEN – The doors open at 6pm, and this is the earliest admittance time. We will be working on other projects and engaged in other meetings right up until 6pm. Thanks for understanding.

START TIME – The doors close at 6:30pm, and you must be inside by this time. This is because the doors don’t, actually, open or close. You’ll be admitted to the office by a volunteer greeter in a familiar “will call” vest standing outside on the sidewalk. Once they join the convening as it starts promptly at 6:30pm, there won’t be anyone to let you in.

BYOB – All of the events are BYOB (bring your own beverage). We are happy to provide snacks.

CONVENING END TIME – Each event will end promptly at 9pm.
