12th & Broad members have been telling us they'd love more opportunities to collaborate professionally in addition to the fun they experience at our monthly Signature Events.

In response, 12th & Broad announces "Next Gen Nashville", a happy hour series for Nashville's next generation of leaders in creative, business and community fields ranging from food to finance, photography to politics, and much more.

Our Next Gen Nashville series kicks off next Thursday, June 12, with a focus on photographers and those who work closely with them. 12th & Broad member and award-winning photography Ashley Segroves is hosting the happy hour in her gorgeous Bombshell Creative studio on 3rd Avenue North.

The format of Next Gen Nashville happy hours is semi-informal, beginning with an unstructured happy hour / meet-and-greet, followed by topical collaboration / discussion, and concluding with guest speaker(s).

Space is intentionally limited, and we strongly encourage guests to have a solid career or community / side project interest in the field at hand. Next Gen Nashville happy hours are free for 12th & Broad members, who also receive priority seating.

RSVP for the inaugural Next Gen Nashville Happy Hour at Bombshell Creative, and mark your calendars for future Next Gen happy hours:

July 17: Food Access and Quality, hosted by the Nashville Farmers Market thanks to 12B Member Tasha Kennard

Aug. 14: Health and Wellness, hosted by The New Beginnings Center thanks to 12B Member Carol Titus

Sept. 18: Writing and Blogging, hosted Farmhouse Art And Junktiques thanks to 12B Member Lori Knowles
