Co-Create Your Community

Circles are small affinity groups of self-selected IKARites who co-create a close-knit, micro-community. Your Circle will include fellow IKARites to share a fun evening, a deep conversation, a creative project, or an experience. We hope to see IKARites connecting with each other around LA and beyond. Have questions? Contact [email protected]. Circles are open to IKAR members only.

Knitting Circle

Knit, crochet, schmooze, enjoy. We welcome people of all skill levels and experiences!
