Arts Leaders of Eugene & Springfield, known as ALES, is a networking, kibitzing, advocating, and collaborating group of get-things-done arts leaders in the Eugene and Springfield area. The group meets informally every month at a local brewery to connect with others who are making things happen in the arts.

Recently, a new variety of ALES has begun to brew! Beginning Friday, March 3rd, ALES meetups will happen every month 4:30-6:30 pm on First Friday ArtWalk evenings. These monthly meetups will be hosted by The Barn Light in downtown Eugene (924 Willamette St). Thank you to The Barn Light for your continued support of the arts!

Upcoming ALES Meetups (4:30-6:30 at The Barn Light downtown)

  • Friday, March 3rd
  • Friday, April 7th
  • Friday, May 5th

So add these dates to calendar, and come downtown on ArtWalk evenings to grab a pint with your favorite artist or arts manager, or maybe it’s just the coworker who shares your desk. (We promise not to judge if that means you buy your own beer.) All are welcome, so bring a friend and connect with your local arts community.
