Marsai Martin’s Picks for a Social Summer
Marsai Martin’s Picks for a Social Summer
Collection by Eventbrite X Marsai Martin
There’s no time like summer for trying new things and meeting new people, especially if you’ve been feeling lonely. Actress, producer, and entrepreneur Marsai Martin knows that social isolation is a huge issue — and she’s ready to do something about it. "Live events are powerful," Marsai says. "They bring us together in ways that social media and daily life can’t." To launch Eventbrite’s Social Connection Project, Marsai has curated events in select US cities (including her Texas hometown) where you can socialize while roller skating, learning improv comedy, or making pizza. For a limited time and while supplies last, you can snag FREE tickets to her event picks when you use the code CONNECTION2022 (not all ticket types apply).
