Creative Potluck

Creative Potluck is a FREE neighbourhood event where artists and community residents gather around food to share ideas, best practices, and network.

The event will feature a facilitated networking session and Pecha Kutcha-style presentations, where each artist is allotted 6min to share their project in a dynamic and succinct presentation.

This series was created from discussions with member organizations and other community partners, with the intent to provide space to share new artist works, discuss creative practices, and generate new ways in which we can build Toronto into a more creative city.

Interested? Stay tuned! Creative Poluck will launch fall 2018.
