Innovation Career Fair – Sept 29 – At Bucyrus Campus
Milwaukee’s newest creative hub, is hosting the Artist Within Innovation Career Fair, Thursday, Sept. 29th, Noon – 5:00 PM
Milwaukee, WI August 23, 2016–Lindsay Heights Neighborhood, Milwaukee’s newest creative hub, is hosting the Artist Within Innovation Career Fair, Thursday, Sept. 29th, Noon – 5:00 PM at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care, Bucyrus Campus, 2450 W. North Ave.
St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus has partnered with Deaduri Gales, a Cardinal Stritch Neighborhood Leadership Institute participant and the organizer of the full day event to bring about a creative concept to address unemployment among young adults, a significant challenge facing Milwaukee’s central city. St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus, located in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood which includes part of the 53206 zip code, is keenly aware that 56% of the population is young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 years. The organization is collaborating with community leaders to address their neighbor’s employment and job training needs by hosting an alternative career fair like the Artist Within Innovation Career Fair. This day of career will promote awareness of opportunities and encourage small business ownership while exposing young people to careers in the arts.
“With increased attention on Milwaukee’s young African Americans, many foundations, organizations and community leaders are looking for ways to address the needs of the youth and help to rebuild a mutually beneficial relationship in the city. Partnering with Deaduri who has made a commitment to the Lindsay Heights community to help bring awareness of the valuable resources our neighborhood has to offer Milwaukee, is the perfect fit to the work St. Ann Center is engaged in daily, says Diane Beckley, chief operating officer with St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus.” The event will showcase local businesses and organizations that use art and creative innovation in daily operations. The day will feature panel conversations and direct opportunities for attendees to connect with local artists and business owners.
