Read full press release here. 


The goal of the GVPTA Coffeehouse Series is to create dialogue and community connections in order to actively address current issues that are important to our members. These themed monthly gatherings will feature community conversations facilitated by industry leaders and working professionals. We will provide a space that is part expert presenter and part facilitated conversation.

This actionable intent is why we have chosen to address the topic of voting in our first coffeehouse meeting on October 7th from 7:00pm-9:00pm.

Let’s discuss what we, as organizations and individuals, can do to get our community members to cast their vote. We will not be sharing our politics, but instead encouraging the arts community to get informed and get out to the polls.

All Coffeehouse events take place from 7:00pm-9:00pm at Propaganda Coffeehouse in Chinatown.
