We are a space for critical thinking, storytelling, and challenging societal norms that make us feel othered.

We are a place of belonging and growth.
“This type of platform is so great! We need more of this!”

What are TMS Meetups?
The Mixed Space’s monthly meetups are a portal into the future, facilitating a transformative experience for mixed, multicultural, multiethnic, multi-lingual and multi-continental individuals needing more community. Every month, our heart-centered space offers a place to unpack and/or share the stories that bring to life what makes us different.

At the meetup, storytelling helps our community feel truly uplifted, supported, and validated. It is a brave space where we make the world a more inclusive and better place.

If you identify as intersectional, mixed identity, an ally, advocate, or a multidimensional human being, the space is for YOU. We encourage all our attendees to bring stories, experiences, and expertise to each meetup.

FAMILYVALUES
Class & the Meaning of Success
For generations, we’ve been told to pull ourselves up from our bootstraps in order to fulfill the “American Dream.” At times, the ability to pass on generational wealth has felt like a myth for our communities as we navigate unavoidable capitalistic systems to find economic freedom.
This month, we’re exploring our perceptions of class and its effect on our familial relationships. What happens when these capitalistic systems penetrate our unique family structures?
family values

 

 

How do differing visions of class,
career, etc affect your family?

How have perspectives on achieving
success shifted throughout generations?

How do we navigate family relations in a society that places more
importance on financial success than on cultural values?

    Meetup Whiteboard
    Watch in real time how our community whiteboard is built on Zoom.

    We invite all attendees to contribute to the board.

    The whiteboard is used as a space for TMS members to share their takeaways from the meetup, name the commitments we pledge to make, and a space where people can have fun and draw whatever resonated with them at the event.

    As an inclusive space, we are mindful to narrate the community efforts on the whiteboard, especially for those who are visually impaired.
