Imported From Grand Rapids
June 7, 2018 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Imported From is about sharing ideas.
Big ideas, wild ideas, bold ideas. Ideas that get you out of bed, ideas that change the world, ideas that drive you to go places you never thought you’d go.
Our state is full of people with exactly these brave notions, and Imported From is here to bring them together and to you. Movers and shakers from Detroit and Grand Rapids trade cities for an evening to share what makes them tick, build connections around their cause, and offer takeaways to inspire and improve the initiatives of like-minded humans.
Speakers from across industries are united by the drive to make change for the better in their communities, and the scrappy, unconventional and brave steps they took to get there.
June speakers include: Mindy Ysasi (Founder and Executive Director of The Source, and a founding Member of the Latina Network); Kurt Reppart is the Executive Director of The Other Way Ministries, and a City Commissioner; Darel Ross II and Paul Moore (Directors at Start Garden). Together, they’re sharing how building a community that’s good for us all means getting dirty, doing it yourself, and why it’s worth it.
