The Kendall Square Association's Third Thursday's are a monthly gathering after hours for networking and an opportunity to showcase a non-profit in Cambridge
This past month's event had us all at Voltage Café, courtesy of MIT and our KSA board member Sarah Gallop. Showcased was the very cool Community Art Center which provides for "at need" kids by focusing through art.
Their organizational values are values we share: We believe in the power of young people, we believe in the power of artistic expression, we believe in taking care of ourselves and each other and we believe in creating positive change in our neighborhood and beyond.
Founded in 1932, the Community Art Center is a neighborhood institution committed to cultivate an engaged community of youth whose powerful artistic voices transform their lives, their neighborhoods, and their worlds. They provide "creative, challenging learning opportunities to low-income, high-needs youth in the context of a family-like environment with intensive social and emotional supports including academic help, mental health and transportation services and up to three full meals a day."
At our Third Thursday event, they shared examples from their artistic vision and showed off a collection of Videos and films they made over the past year. Nurturing, communicating, collaborating - all good things for all of us to think about in business communications.
They also were excited to announce the next installment of their not to be missed film festival. DIYDS.
