Poor Richards Junto Newsletter Vol. 1

What Are You Going To Do With That? The Arts and Humanities at Work

Free workshop.  If you’re a student of the arts or humanities and a well-meaning relative has ever asked “what are you going to do with that?” this event is for you. Five panelists working in educational nonprofits, arts advocacy organizations, archives, and bookstores will speak to what it’s like to build a career outside the university that still privileges the ideas and values of the liberal arts. 

Discussion will begin at 4:30. Join us before the panel at 3:30 for a networking reception with our panelists. @ the Writers House 305 Cooper Street   March 8, 2017   3:30 pm-6:00 pm
