Save the Date! TASK Party on Thursday, October 19th during OELMA’s After Hours

You are invited to participate in a TASK party as part of our OELMA Conference After Hours! Brooklyn based artist Oliver Herring, the inventor of TASK, defines TASK as “an improvisational event with a simple structure and very few rules.” He founded TASK to create an event where participants could meet new people and develop a sense of community through art and creativity. To learn more about TASK visit Oliver Herring’s website: or click HERE to watch a video about the process. 

You will not want to miss this great event! TASK is designed to be energetic, active, exciting, and fun. All you need to bring is your sense of wonder and willingness to try something new. During the TASK party, you will be challenged to practice divergent thinking by interpreting each unique task in your own way using available tools and materials. The flow and momentum of TASK depends on the tasks written and how they are interpreted by the participants. This open-ended event will develop creativity, promote risk-taking, build comfort with ambiguity, and incorporate many other essential skills. Please join us on Thursday, October 19th at 9:00 pm and be part of the fun!

We are also in need of many consumable items for our task party including: office supplies, paper products, recyclable materials, craft materials, and party supplies. If you are able to donate any of these supplies, please click on the survey linked HERE to sign up. These items can be dropped off at the OELMA registration desk anytime during the Preconference and Conference (until Thursday the 19th in the afternoon).

Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing you at the TASK party!
