Organizing Shine never gets old. With every Passion Co. class graduating, we get giddy about seeing our program participants shining and revealing proudly their labor of love to the world.
For our September 17th Shine we scouted a new location, in one of our favorite neighborhoods, The Mission. Galería de La Raza founded in 1970, is a non-profit community-based arts organization whose mission is to foster public awareness and appreciation of Chicano/Latino art and serve as a laboratory where artists can both explore contemporary issues in art, culture and civic society, and advance intercultural dialogue.
Our theme for this month, LEGACY was inspired by my Burning Man experience, where I spent time in the temple reflecting on what I want to be remembered for and wether I was on the right track towards my desire. At Shine, you will be engaged through art, creativity and group exercises to think through this important question yourself too.
We are partnering with Peerspace, a marketplace for creative spaces, Yamba Hummus who will be providing a delicious Hummus bar and Bee D'Vine, who will cater a honey wine bar for the evening. Kate Kittredge founder of Pétale SF, and one of our Passion muses, curated and designed our flowers.
This evening is for you if:
- You are looking to meet inspiring and creative people and connect with them on a meaningful level
- You are exploring your life purpose and passions
- You are an artist and looking to get involved in a passionate community
- You appreciate art, entrepreneurship and tasteful things in life
Tickets are selling out, so get yours soon and we hope to celebrate with you.
