The Skillery has been chosen as a host for 99U Local, a series of worldwide events based on the making-ideas-happen focus of New York's 99U conference. This September, we'll be joining 27 other organizations around the world for a week of events geared toward taking inspiration out of our heads and into the world.
WHAT IS IT?
This is not a conference. It's a casual, intimate gathering based on 99U's ethos of putting ideas into action. The event will consist of three curated talks that embody that ethos and share road-tested insights, followed by a casual networking and drinks session.
WHEN IS IT?
99U Local: Nashville will be held at The Skillery on Thursday, September 17, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
99U Local: Nashville is free and open to the public, and space is extremely limited. Registration is required.
