Creative Co-Working Think Tank – Call For Artists
Lansdowne Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) is looking for creatives to help with interior design ideas, thoughts on decorations, furniture, and space sizes for a Creative Co-Working Think Tank. LEDC will bring the beer and wine. You bring the creative minds and some colorful duck tape, if you have it. LEDC will mark out your floor plan ideas. Come see the space mid-renovation. Call dibs on your studio space.
Deadline: 29 Nov 2017
The Creative Co-Working Think Tank will be held on Thursday, Nov. 30th at 6-8 pm at 32 E Baltimore Ave, Lansdowne, PA. This event will allow artists to get in on the ground floor of the newest creative co-working space in Delaware County Pennsylvania. If you are looking for creative co-working in a town that has a small-town feel or close proximity to the city of Philadelphia, you will find both in Lansdowne.
