Attending 'Mass Appeal' Forum

Mass Appeal: Life Beyond the Job
Monday, August 8 at the Institute of Contemporary Art

4 pm - 5:30 pm | Brainstorming & Conversations
5:30 pm – 7 pm | Cocktail & Networking Reception

You're invited to attend this FREE event exploring how arts and entertainment impact whether or not people choose to live in Massachusetts. This is your chance to be part of the conversation!

Play a role in this lively and interactive event exploring the most appealing
aspects of life in Massachusetts. You can help define a new path for the
Commonwealth by lending your voice to one of two discussions:

 · Dining, Nightlife & Recreation
 · Arts & Culture
Get ready for an uncommon evening of dynamic discussion sparked by live Twitter
feeds and real-time polling projections. Drawing inspiration from our multimedia
surroundings and the ICA’s stunning waterfront location, panels will generate ideas
and determine the best ways to showcase all that Massachusetts has to offer.
Register today to be eligible for 10 drawings a week featuring pairs of tickets
to some of the coolest events and activities around. Don’t miss out on this
exciting networking opportunity!

“Mass Appeal” is part of Building a Better Commonwealth’s “Talent: The Foundation
of our Future” series. Find ongoing updates and featured speakers by visiting our
