So the most social discourse I get out of my day is watching a 3 and 4 year old....
Once you make a few friendships the friendship ball will start to snowball. Does your employer have any suggs or single friends? I don't go to bars by myself even when there's a good chance I will run into someone I know there.
“Our hope is that each person that’s here will be bold and brave and introduce themselves to someone and find something that they need and find ways in which they can assist others,” said Griesbach.
The speed-dating-esque event let artists sit face to face with administrators and curators to discuss their work and whether it fits with certain institution’s anesthetics and goals.
UNIVERSITY CITY, MO — The University City School District is looking to recruit teachers for the 2018-2019 school year and is hosting a "speed dating" event March 21 at Blueberry Hill to interview eligible candidates.
The district said it decided on a speed-dating format to allow administrators and potential teachers to choose each other, rather than a more traditional one-sided process."We have aggressive and clearly defined education goals and we acknowledge the importance of acquiring amazing teachers to forward those goals and teach our talented students," said Tiffany Slater, assistant superintendent of Human Resources for the district.
The event aimed to increase artists’ understanding of what galleries, venues and museums are looking for in terms of local artwork.
Artists from various neighborhoods and disciplines were also invited to provide 15-minute presentations on their work.
