As professional creatives, we help transform our clients every day. We reinvent the way brands look, act, and communicate. But our ability to create transformation doesn’t stop with our clients. We can put our talents to use in our local communities, helping shape the place we live and work.
Join Drew Ungvarsky, founder of Grow, as he shares the story of how he and his company discovered their role in driving community to change. He’ll share several projects and how they came to life, and give guidance on how you can get started, no matter what your experience level.
Last, Drew will reveal some of the first details about a new community project — his and Grow’s most ambitious to date — and how you can be a part of it. You don’t want to miss this one.
