CULTURE BREAKS AT THE BETSY: Over the years, we have explored a variety of convening models  as part of our Writer’s Room Program: from Breakfast Salons and Luncheon Roundtables to formal and informal readings - all with lots of success.  This year we're exploring something brand new. We're proud to introduce The Betsy's Culture Break Artist Talks. This will be our lead creative convening model for the 2017-18 season, featuring visiting artists, as well as creatives from the greater Miami community.
