CLUB TALKS is a new series presented by the Des Moines Social Club, designed to elevate the conversation surrounding arts in greater Des Moines. Artists will present new work/ideas/concepts that inspire and spark conversation, followed by a talk-back to answer your questions and share your thoughts.

Des Moines Social ClubSHYLAH KAY is a creative consultant and free agent. She practices the art of showing up for projects like Art Beacon, Art Terrarium, Art Week Des Moines, Circular Sessions, Market Day Iowa, Beast Village Comedy Festival and the Des Moines Social Club. Over the years she has followed her guts as they’ve lead her to make up wild ideas and see what happens. The results have been countless community events, pop ups, a houseplant shop, dozens of collaborative art shows and many sleepless nights wondering what the hell she is doing and who is to blame for the notion that she can be whatever she wants. It was most likely her crazy parents and she hasn’t told them enough how glad she is about them instilling this freedom in her but she’s writing it into her biography now and making a note to give them a hug and thank them later.
