1 Million Cups: The Log Project
June 22 @ 8:45 am - 10:00 amFree
The Log Project is a collaborative arts project working to “tell the story of the storm” (that is, the Iowa Derecho of August 10, 2020). When environmental catastrophes impact a community, people need an opportunity to slow down and to come together to recognize what has happened. They need an opportunity to record the individual stories that make up the larger narrative. Media and reporting address the facts, but only collective art projects can capture lived experience.

About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids
The Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups (1MC) on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. We welcome early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges to present their companies. Typically, one or several representatives present before a panel of experts. They seek advice and then engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and explorations of business failures and the lessons learned!
The Cedar Rapids chapter is the sixth in the U.S., and events take place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
Join us Wednesdays @ 8:45 a.m. at The Olympic Theater South Side (1202 3rd St SE #200, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401)! Each event features a presentation or conversation with a new founder, entrepreneur, business leader, subject matter expert, or creative. Find a list of upcoming events and presenters on our Calendar.
We update events as new information is available, so check the calendar often!
