First Shot: The Importance of Music & Art Venues in Your City

Location Ames City Auditorium, 515 Clark Ave, Ames, Iowa
Contact Diana Wright, dkw@iastate.edu

We are excited to announce the next First Shot event with Craig Kaufman, Ames City Auditorium and Bandshell manager!

Craig is an Iowa native, and has come back after years in New York City, working in various theater and music production facilities. His passion for bringing interesting arts and music to Ames is infectious. One of his main roles is to bring new acts to both the Bandshell Park the Ames City Auditorium.

We’ve asked Craig to speak because of the importance of having a strong arts and music culture in Ames, which enables startups looking to recruit and hire new employees. Let’s rally behind the arts and music community…
Come, grab a coffee and join the discussion!

We will kick-off the presentation at 8AM, but come earlier to hangout (drink coffee), network, and share stories.

Special note: First Shot will be at the Ames City Auditorium. If you’ve never been there, it is attached to City Hall (right next to the police station).
