Idea Factory After dark: exploring the culture of drag

Gaudy outfits sparkling brightly under lights, outlandishly colored eyeliner wings, voluminous hair and upbeat pop tracks: these are only a few of the images conjured when one thinks of drag performances. In reality, however, drag can be a vibrant expanse of performance types, with multitudes of participants that range in style, appearance, age and background. 

The Idea Factory’s After Dark Series, presents an exploration of the drag culture, featuring a facilitated panel discussion with drag professionals, amateurs and more, followed by a full drag performance! An interactive Q&A will answer many of the questions you’ve been curious about but afraid to ask about the culture of drag.

Idea Factory forum: Why Craft Brewers Collaborate vs. Compete

Craft brewers have a community that is unlike many in the corporate world – instead of competition it is collaboration. Craft beer is still very much a “little guy” standing up to “the man” culture. The Idea Factory Forum Series presents an interactive discussion with area brewers on the culture of craft, examining the unique way these businesses work with their competitors to grow the industry. 

Alternating Current’s only panel about craft beer, this unabashed and candid discussion will dive into all aspects of brewing, from perceptions of craft “elitism” to the impact of big beer companies buying up small brewers. Panelists include regional craft brewers - get ready for a booze-filled interactive discussion!
