Speed Networking - 8:19 Only.png

meet your creative soulmate

Join us for a free speed networking event for artists to meet one-on-one through a series of rapid-fire networking meetings - à la speed dating!

Our speed networking event is an opportunity for artists to meet their creative soulmates across disciplines. It operates on the belief that fostering great creative partnerships leads to the creation of great art, and that great art is a service to all. We seek to eliminate barriers-to-entry and increase the breadth of exposure artists have to like-minded collaborators. Plus, we’ll have free pizza and refreshments!

We hope to hear "We got our start at The Scratch" for years to come!

This event is inspired by and produced in partnership with The Commonground.


What are the details I need to know?
To sign-up, fill out the linked sign-up form. 

We will confirm your attendance as the date of the event approaches.

Can I just show up?
Unfortunately there is limited space for the event, therefore we ask prospective attendees to fill out the linked sign-up form.

We will confirm attendance as we approach the date of the event.

In addition to the space limitation, the central "speed-networking" feature is time-demanding. The number of attendees invited to each event is consciously chosen in an effort to maximize contact with like-minded collaborators without overstepping the event’s logistical constraints.

Am I guaranteed a spot by signing up? How do you decide who gets to attend?We are dedicated to inclusivity - hence the free admission. However, due to space and time limitations, we cannot guarantee a spot at this event.

The Scratch aims to encourage collaboration across disciplines, and so attendees may be chosen to ensure a mixed ratio of specialties ( i.e. we want to avoid having 45 actors meeting solely other actors.)

I have a question, comment, or concern not addressed here!
