HIGH FIVES ALL AROUND
Welcome to our November 2019 blog series, where each week we’ll be highlighting one of Indy Hall’s micro-communities! These are just a sampling of the various and vibrant smaller communities that exist within the larger Indy Hall family. Some of them take place entirely online, some of them only in person, and a mix, too.
This week we will be highlighting the community of our Slack channel called #daily-goals!
Open Hall, Open Hearts, Can’t Lose
If you find yourself in Old City on First Friday, there’s a lot to see and experience.
The art galleries, the food, the cool people! So exciting! And should you should find yourself at the corner of 4th and Market, you’ll also be met with an open door to Indy Hall’s monthly tradition, Open Hall.
This time-honored tradition takes place on the aforementioned first Friday of each month, and the...[click for more]
MOTHER EARTH & MENTAL HEALTH
Intro & Tell
One of the most sacred and time-honored traditions of Indy Hall is an event with a title that sends one’s heart right back to grade school—Show & Tell. It is our longest-running community event, which takes place every third Thursday of every month. The idea behind it is simple: provide a space for folks our community to give a 10-minute lightning talk on absolutely anything.

"A Place Where You Find People"
The lights were dim in the main hall at National Mechanics, but the energy of the room was on fire.
The Stage was Set
This past Friday (Sept 27th), folks of the past and present Indy Hall came together for a unique celebration—a 10+3 Birthday Party, to belatedly celebrate our first 10 years + the 3 years since spent in our new-ish home on Market Street. It was an...[click for more]
Indy Hall's 10+3 Birthday Party is Friday Sept 27
Earlier this month, Indy Hall turned 13 years old. Wow.
For many years, we would celebrate our anniversary (and other major milestones) with a big bash of some kind. A night of celebrating with friends and community long into the night.
Disappointingly, we missed celebrating our 10 year in 2016 because we had just moved and were busy getting settled into our new space.
But I want to get...[click for more]
Career Confusion to Career Confidence
Many of us know how confusing finding a career path can be; whether in memory, or because right this second we’re feeling lost.
At Indy Hall, we meet so many people who are feeling stuck in their field and looking for a way out.
Often times they are:
- Recent grads who are feeling dubious about jobs in their field of study
- New parents who need to restructure the way...[click for more]
