Field Trip: Material for the Arts

Wed, November 8, 2017 6:00 pm


We are excited to host our very first networking field trip on November 8th @ 6pm-8pm, to visit Materials for the Arts, located in Long Island City, Queens at 33-00 Northern Boulevard, 3rd Floor, Long Island City, NY 11101. The nearest trains are the M, N, W, or E trains. The easiest way to travel there from our meeting location on 8th Ave is by taking the NW train at 42nd street towards Queens and getting off at the 39th Ave stop.

Materials for The Arts is an organization that collects unneeded/unwanted items from businesses and individuals, and allows these donations available for free to its recipients (nonprofit organization with arts programming, government agencies, and public schools) twice a week at it's warehouse.

The evening will include a few things. Materials for The Arts will be giving a tour of their space, speaking to us on what the donation process is like, and educating us on how we can work together to build a relationship which will ultimately make it easier on our clients to donate their goods.

We need a headcount by October 23rd, so please send Erin a quick email to let us know if you plan on coming.
