ArtServe (InSIDE)/Out (and more)

I got an email from my friend Cathie today about great events taking place at ArtServe this summer.

ArtSertve is an arts incubator located in Fort Lauderdale (1350 E Sunrise Blvd). Because of its commitment to creating cultural experiences for the community, ArtServe has become a national model for other arts supporting organizations.

ArtServe is a multi-purpose facility that offers a shared office environment and venue at affordable costs to the more than 350 nonprofit cultural organizations and 10,000 artists living and working in Broward County. ArtServe encourages the growth of cultural organizations with educational and marketing programs including The Art of Doing Business workshop series, and the Broward County Commission’s Cultural Division’s Cooperative Marketing Program.

So… here’s what’s going on at ArtServe this summer:
