Grand Rapids Chamber hosting first mixer for creatives
The Grand Rapids Chamber is producing its first mixer for professionals in creative fields.
The chamber will host its Grand Rapids Creative Chambers Mixer this Wednesday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at its office downtown, at 250 Monroe NW.
The mixer is the launch of the chamber’s Creative Chambers initiative, funded by the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office, to support the creative economy in Grand Rapids.
“By telling the story of creative businesses here, we hope to change the perception that in order to find high quality creative talent, you must go outside of the region,” said Dante Villarreal, the chamber’s VP of business services and talent development.
“We want to connect local businesses with local creatives.”
Registration for the event is free and open to the public.
