iNSPiRED Lifestyle Arts & Entertainment Alliance (iLAEA) in partnership with UGAI CIC (A Not-for-Profit) have aligned visions to enrich and enhance the quality of life for individuals, families, and neighborhoods. Utilizing a series of Empowerment Engagements & Experiences we hope to educate, ignite, and connect an iNSPiRED Lifestyle where it matters most.

This is where your involvement comes in. Through a collaborative effort alongside some great corporate partners, it is our desire to host quarterly consumer involvement events that facilitate a new way to experience camaraderie, creativity, interactive leisure, and more for urban or underserved households. We invite you to use your influence with your neighbors in helping us to benefit and redefine our culture, our lifestyle, and our communities. Opportunities for individual and community betterment, connecting, networking, contests, prizes, and give-a-ways will abound.

Also, we invite you to join with us in our exclusive crusade to #iNSPiREcommon-Unity and be #NeighborMakers, an online and social media campaign in which we seek imaginative and inventive ways to iNSPiRE and showcase the real value we hold for one another in urban communities. The concept calls for the use of smartphones and other devices or methods to be a good neighbor or capture others doing so. In this way we will build a grassroots movement for a new way of living as well as the quarterly events and other worthwhile endeavors.

Urban Style & Home: Fashion, Interior, Hosting & Culinary Creations – February 20, 2016

Urban Arts Exposure: Visual & Fine Arts Exhibit & Education – May 21, 2016
