The concept of Nashville Connected was born from a gift of "connecting" people, both personally and professionally. Through artistic conversation and analytical curiosity the idea developed for building a social and professional circle that connects individuals, companies, Information Technology (IT) professionals, and community organizations through creative opportunities, mentoring/educational efforts, and technology skills/roles. The vision of Nashville Connected is to craft an ecosystem to help raise women's socioeconomic status by adding / expanding knowledge and skills in IT using creative and collaborative efforts. And how does ART relate to IT? Well, believe it or not, the creative mind brings innovative ideas, and Tech is a key part of building innovation. A creative mind is key whether connecting people or connecting systems and processes. We will have art workshops along with technical training to create an inviting space for all.
And, thus we have:
ART. TECH. CONNECT.

This site will showcase original photography from myself and from guest artists. We may also include some other fun ART-sy items---paintings, sculptures, pottery, repurposed art--and special fund-raising events. (It's a work-in-progress.) You will be able to purchase art via this site by choosing the "art" menu option, and "clicking" each photo or going into "photo albums", where folders are setup to organize by location/category. We will commit a portion of proceeds to be used to support community education in creative and technical skills.
