mingle – drink- share – commune – play

playdate is En Garde Arts’ newest performance series celebrating early career artists. Hosted in a very cozy backyard, playdate is a series of community gatherings that support innovative works-in-progress by artists who desire a space to play with new ideas and make new connections. Come to enjoy a drink, nibbles, entertainment, and see what we can create together – let’s play!

“From a raw & barely-written draft that I’d definitely never have brought to a higher-pressure space, something started coalescing in the Playdate backyard that’s looking like the seed of a whole new work.”
