Mission to (dit)Mars Holiday Mixer December 17th!

Holiday-CocktailsJoin us for our second mixer – and this one is just in time for the holidays! We have some exciting announcements lined up and can’t wait to share them with you! We also just thought it would be cool to hang out, so let’s do that! This is an opportunity for you to come meet some of your fellow artists, have a few beers, and tell us all your plans for 2013.

Monday 12/17/12 at 6pm

Alewife NYC
5-14 51st Ave. – upstairs lounge
Long Island City, NY (7 Train to Vernon Jackson)
Happy Hour specials till 8 pm, snacks provided (can you say “Garlic fries”?)
There is also a Facebook invite – please go and “like” our page for all the latest updates! And please share our page so we get some more “likes”!

As with all our gatherings, keep these things in mind (we have a Suggestion Box at every event):

  • Forming a “connective tissue” of Queens based artists; a living, breathing collective for idea sharing and inspiration
  • Space sharing and space donation for people to work (theaters, church basements, apartments, etc.)
  • Ideas for meetings and groups (do you want a writers group? A monthly meeting of dancers? An improv group?)
  • Ideas for other forms of art other than theater (including dance, music, and visual art)
  • Site-specific theatrical events
  • Ideas for fun “teambuilding” events (i.e. Art-based pub crawls, more mixers, etc.)
  • Anything you want!

We hope the end of 2012 is treating you well. We can’t wait to celebrate the holidays with you!

Cheers!

Mission Accomplished: The Mixer

Mission to (dit)Mars has officially started!  We had our first mixer last night and it was a rousing success!  Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to join us on this special night for us.   We had representatives from the Queens City Council, The Chocolate Factory and Flux Theatre Ensemble, as well as many others.   Stay tuned for more exciting news.  Until then, enjoy some photos from our mixer last night:

We are pleased to announce the location for our VERY FIRST Mission to ditMARS event! Please join us for cocktails, conversation and FUN on Wednesday, August 15th from 6:30 – 9:30 pm at Alewife in Long Island City!

YEAH! We’re super grateful to this venue for hosting us, and the location couldn’t be more convenient. If you think you can make it, please RSVP to missiontoditmars@gmail.com (but if you decide to come at the last minute, don’t worry – there’s not a limit!). The party will be held in the upstairs lounge area. This is a very informal gathering – if you can come for the whole thing, great. If you want to stop by later, great. If you can only stay 15 minutes, that’s fine too! We just want to meet you!
