Countdown #54 to Unity Plaza opening – Announcing UP CLUBS – Reach your higher potential

UP Clubs

Unity Plaza’s clubs meet monthly by default or on a calendar devised by their members.

Club activities will be connected to our monthly programming themes. 

Club dues are minimal and based upon supporting inner-club activities and contributing to plaza operations. 

Club dues are 100% charitable contributions.

This is a first draft of club descriptions.  Unity Plaza reserves the right to create membership age parameters based on curriculum/activities and to modify pricing as needed with further development of club activities.

Review 12 Monthly Themes

Cultural Creatives Meet Up Group – According to Wikipedia, “Cultural Creatives is a term coined by sociologist Paul H. Ray and psychologist Sherry Ruth Anderson to describe a large segment in Western society that has recently developed beyond the standard paradigm of Modernists versus Traditionalists or Conservatists. The concept was presented in 2000 in their book The Cultural Creatives. How 50 Million People Are Changing the World (Harmony Books, NY), where they claim to have found that 50 million adult Americans can now be identified as belonging to this group.” This meet-up group will explore the finer segments of culture in Northeast Florida, play a large part in the UP weekly Sunday Sundown Renewal and be self-led.
