NH Creative, Science & Tech Events: 4/15/18 - 4/21/18

by Pat Hammond on Thursday, April 12, 2018


Wow! 7 Days of Creative, Science & Tech Events. I don't know what's going on, but it doesn't get any better than this.

Next week's events calendar has art shows & fundraisers, a mental health job fair, a TEDx event, and way more tech than I can handle.  (That VPN/Cisco talk on Monday evening looks very interesting.)

And having said all that, I want to take a minute to talk about art. 

There's no tactful way to say it. The arts are to business what canaries are to coal miners. And right now, the New Hampshire art scene is booming. 

There are art shows, theater groups, classes and hands-on training events popping up all over the place. They're bringing the promise of new ideas and the belief that the economy really is better.

You don't have to be a creative to appreciate how this trend reflects on our communities.  

Even if you don't know a palette from a piton, think about taking an hour to stop by the Art Social Manchester Pop Up Gallery event at Jupiter Hall in Manchester on Sunday.  This free event is open from 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM and will feature work by local artists, music, and light refreshments.  

Remember, networking happens wherever you find people.
