Come hear Rebekah Lowe speak at Business N Brews Monday, February 1st at 7pm at Catawba Brewing Co - South Slope Location. This is a FREE event. 

"When I hear about or meet another working artist or creative business owner, it's so easy to feel like I'm just meeting another competitor. That mindset is exhausting--there are a lot of us. It is so important (especially in Asheville) to flip that notion and recognize instead that we're surrounded by people who can identify with our challenges--who can become our colleagues and allies. The space Asheville Folk is creating is an opportunity to drop that mindset, flip that notion and actually connect. It really feels like that's what's happening here." - Al Murray of Steeltoe Sunshine.
