New Homemakers Workshop Kickoff at Canvas
Gone are the days of working in a single career for 30 years and retiring with a pension. Knowing this, it is still taboo to make a major pivot in career or life. Luckily, taboo topics are never off limits for us.
Join the Rebelle Community at The Market by Canvas for some 'real talk" with women who have made pivots in their careers and their lives and have absolutely NO SHAME in moving on.

Scott Elmquist and IofC USA host exhibit for Gun Violence
What does it take for a seemingly unmotivated high school student to pursue a project to completion? Teachers and parents often speak disdain of teens who abandon ideas, school work, or tasks given to them and it's easy to then say: kids are just irresponsible.
This summer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond along with Journey Learning Labs, piloted a program called “LaunchPad” to test the assumption that teens are just irresponsible.
Book Launch at Canvas
I AM HERE, a communal space of expression on gun violence opens June 28-30th at Canvas. The exhibit will feature intimate portraits spanning over two decades in Richmond by Scott Elmquist and a sound installation by Allan Charles Chipman, of Initiatives of Change, USA.

Tie Lunch at Laura Lee's into Your Agenda at Canvas
You probably know this guy, too - Keith Ramsey of RamseyArtWorks, LLC. Ramsey has built and problem-solved for many areas in Canvas.
His latest work can be found a few blocks from us at Crossroads Coffee, our trusty neighbor and go-to place we source coffee, lunches, and even ice cream for our events.
For Bike Month, We Added a Bike
Laura Lee's can now host private lunches for your Canvas offsite. Your dream agenda: Start your morning session with coffee in The Garden, then meet in The House, walk to lunch at Laura Lee's, wrap up the afternoon with presentations in The Market, followed by happy hour drinks back in The Garden.
Suffocating Conference Rooms
As we close out national bike month, we figured we needed a communal bike to make available to guests at Canvas. As you take a break from your meeting and you have the urge to burn off some energy or have the wind blow through your hair, just grab the bike and go. Maybe down to WPA or Crossroad for a snack. Or ride around Forest Hill Park lake and spot the blue herons as they fish.
Why Canvas? Because of this.
Breathe. De-emphasize the technology. Walk the trails. Have coffee in the backyard. Move from Lounge to Market to Studio to the Trailer. Change the environment, keep the oxygen, ideas, and openness flowing.
