Saturday, July 21st at 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Hello BloomBars Community,
Have you ever said, “I’m not creative!” Well it’s a big fat lie! Everyone’s got an artistic bent. It’s just been buried or beat out of some of us by life’s vicissitudes. Come and reclaim what’s rightfully yours. SPACIOUS invites you to our second Blank Canvas Day, back by popular demand, at BloomBars, our favorite space for low-key and chill, edgy and interesting gatherings; good things always happen there. We’ll gather on Saturday, July 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come and explore your latent (or obvious) artistic talent. Come meet cool people and eat good food. What a great Saturday!
We’ll be led by artist Lisa Shirk, and we’ll be fed by caterer Rebecca Hook (with vegan and vegetarian options). And we will produce actual, tangible proof that we are each imaginative and unique.
SPACIOUS brings together people who might not normally meet in fun and facilitated settings for play and personal connections. We consult, and we design and produce custom events (like this one) for a diverse and growing population of people in DC and beyond, and we inspire people around tenets of fun, being deeply known, banishing “us and them” thinking, creativity and generosity.
SPACIOUS is the logical and quirky outcome of a dream I’ve had for years – of creating space for people to flourish and to have fun while deeply engaging others, especially those unlike them. The vision emerged out of my own life story as I long wondered if I’d ever escape the little box I’d crawled into to make sense of life and to protect myself from challenges to a narrowly constructed worldview. Eventually I climbed out of that box and entered life with a vengeance, ready to make up for lost time. Escaping my straitjacket, I knew I was on a path to freedom and more mystery that others would also relish. When an unlikely friendship with my SPACIOUS partner, Joey Katona, brought a needed dash of “otherness” to my life, SPACIOUS was created.
We are excited to meet YOU and watch you bloom. Sign up here!
