March 2020, Covid-19 shook the world. Regardless of pedigree, people from all walks of life reevaluated their priorities, assessed needs, and undergone a period of self-reflection. This self-evaluation of life shined a light on one basic human need we all took for granted, and that is the power of human interaction.
Our primary need for human connection spun a haven of creativity, from drive-by birthday parties to virtual concerts. Witnessing innovation through necessity provides evidence that cultural events are a vital life component.
At twelve21 we want to utilize our creative talents and natural ability to bring people together to produce diverse, high-quality events designed to improve our lives. We want to serve as a catalyst to stimulate civic pride, recruit and retain high valuable and resourceful businesses and talent, but most importantly, improve the mental and physical health of our community by ensuring residents can live, work and play in their communities.
Invest your time, talent, and resources with twelve21, and let’s start new traditions and create fond long-lasting memories, together.
More details on twelve21 foundation coming soon.
