Description:

UnCo. + Make Lemonade have united forces to bring you a magical night of story telling, vulnerability & community.

Something that is rarely talked about is the honesty and hardship associated with starting something from scratch. We mention failure, how we can't let it define us and how we must find the strength to get back up. But what happens when you can't get back up? How do you cope with personal sacrifice or make tough decisions when you just don't know? This is a conversation about overcoming personal adversity and finding your way.


Honest humans having real conversations based off of personal experience, in an inclusive and supportive space.

All ticket sales, will go towards a creative project fund for women identifying folks who want to apply with an idea and bring it to life. Community driven events for the community and put back into the community, details being released early December.

Space:

Make Lemonade Co-Working Space


Make Lemonade was created because the struggle is real. Tired of jumping from coffee shop to coffee shop with dodgy wifi and limited seating, we set out on a mission to create an office space that lived inside our imagination. Welcome to Make Lemonade, a design-forward co-working environment, where the coffee is strong, the lighting is bright, and phone calls can be made without worrying who might be making a racket beside you.
