In Pictures | Free Co-Working Day @ The HIVE 2.0

As you all know I run The HIVE 2.0 and on Monday, August 27th we hosted a Free Co-Working Day. We were "buzzing" with activity all day! We started the day off with a morning networking session, followed that up with some press interviews, and we were blessed with a tour and meeting with John Finneran, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of Capital One Bank! Capital One Bank is a generous sponsor and partner of The HIVE 2.0 and we greatly appreciate their support! 

All in all it was a great day full of networking, co-working, and small business collaborating. We are looking forward to repeating it again soon! Including some pictures of the day below. The photos are courtesy of Tommie Adams Photography -- a Ward 8 resident and small business! 

And in case you didn't know (but should) The HIVE 2.0 is a project of ARCH Development Corporation, a Ward 8 nonprofit serving Anacostia for nearly 30 years!

Why ARCH Development Corporation uses arts and culture to revitalize Anacostia.

The Advoc8te took these pictures last night during the "Cheap Thrills" affordable art fair last night at Anacostia Arts Center. This event was free and open to the public and all the art work was under $500 -- and lots of it was sold last night! There was also a free ska concert. Over 200 people attended last night's event -- some visitors, some residents, and all were ready for a great time!  Every single one of those people contributed to the economic development and revitalization of Anacostia. The small businesses in and around the Anacostia Arts Center once again benefitted from a night of visitors, consumers, and admirers.

If a picture is worth a thousand words things are definetly looking up for Anacostia! 

Two free small business workshops today @ The HIVE 2.0
