CultureCamp Guelph

Waterloo Region has a number of really cool and creative community initiatives going on (check out Ideas Transform) and ever since I attended Culture Camp at Kitchener City Hall in 2009, I've been trying to think of ways to bring the same type of event to Guelph. As fantastic as we are, I think we can do even better.

I decided to bring the idea to a brainstorming session with a number of other local orgs, and to my pleasant surprise, my colleagues were game!

CultureCamp Guelph will take place on May 25 from 2-4pm at the River Run, followed by a few friendly beverages between 4-5pm. It's an ‘unconference’ – a participant driven workshop that brings members of the creative community together to engage, learn and collaborate. This event is meant to generate new ideas and uncover a shared purpose regarding the local arts community, and more specifically, for Culture Days.

Many thanks go to Brock Hart for providing both the inspiration and encouragement...and for allowing us to adopt the name. CultureCamp Guelph is a free event! Everyone is welcome! Bring your fresh ideas, your business cards and your enthusiasm!
