On Friday, January 16th, come grab coffee from our friends at Steadfast and chat with the Executive Director of the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, Jen Cole during the week's installment of The Skillery's Office Hours.
About Office Hours:
On Friday mornings, we invite Skillery members and friends in for free drip coffee and coworking with a bonus educational component we call Office Hours. Each week, a local or visiting pro — from content creators to PR veterans to busy shop owners — will meet, greet, share valuable biz wisdom and answer your questions, in a casual group setting. It’s our weekly get together with local professionals, and you’re invited.
