OUR NEW SERIES: LET'S CONNECT COFFEE TIME

ABOUT THE LET'S CONNECT EVENT SERIES

Minneapolis is filled with great local people doing great things in the world. The Southwest Connector will showcase them with "Let's Connect," a new community speakers series.

Every month, the Southwest Connector will feature an interesting local resident to talk about their work and life in Minneapolis. Southwest Connector owner/editor Tesha M. Christensen and Southwest Connector columnist Eric Ortiz will moderate the conversation and take questions from the audience.

"Let's Connect" will take place on the first or second Friday of every month, from 9-10 a.m., at Everett & Charlie, an art gallery in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis.

The goal of "Let's Connect" is to celebrate great locals, support their work, and build community.

The "Let's Connect" speaker series is free and open to the public. All are welcome to join us. Food and drinks will be provided.

Let us know if you are interested in being a sponsor or speaker for Let's Connect.
