We're a group of community and civic-minded individuals who are taking the future into our own hands by creating a city that attracts and gives voice to the 18-40 year old generation by connecting people, places, communities, and ideas.

Pecha Kucha Night has been described as a grown-up “show and tell”, with a diverse range of presentation topics, reflecting the unique nature of each presenting city.

Bid Time. Do good. Get Art.

Timeraiser is a party for social good, supporting artists and non-profits. Attendees bid volunteer time, not dollars for original art. In addition to supporting emerging artists, Timeraiser aims to foster and celebrate volunteerism in the city.
