We’ve been working on some big ideas here at Outspoke. A new office space, new team members and a fresh creative initiative we’re pumped to share with you. Today we are proud to announce our recent launch of Rare Tempo, an upcoming art venue located in the Five Points neighborhood. The gallery concept came about by chance, when we had the opportunity to move offices and keep the current space to do something more. It’s an ideal place, perfect for a number of artful activities. We wanted to utilize our current space to foster creative conversation through community and engaging events.

At first, we weren’t entirely sure how we wanted to unravel the idea of Rare Tempo, but we were certain we’d need a kickass partner on our side. We reached out to the team at Ello, (the social network for creators, by creators) and a beautiful partnership was born. As we’ve been gearing up to announce this initiative, the Ello team have been wonderful collaborators bringing unique ideas to the table. Our grand opening featured winners from our RT x Ello Competition seeking the best submissions of “Inappropriate Humor” across a number of mediums. The winning pieces are on display and available for purchase at Rare Tempo through mid-May, so there’s still plenty of time to stop by and see what they’re all about!

We’re now on point to put together gallery events, workshops, meetups and more in the Rare Tempo space. We recently hosted the first Thrival Concepts Meet-up and aim to bring more events and collaborations to the gallery. With all the new businesses and buildings being established here in Five Points, our space on Welton is growing into an ideal center for community engagement and new initiatives that contribute to the expansion of this historical neighborhood. If you’re looking for a space to host an event, workshop or party, we’d love to talk about how Rare Tempo makes a beautiful but dynamic space to gather and bring your event to life.

Five Points, say hello to Rare Tempo.
