Creative and intellectual events are a Pick My Brain ritual. For the last few years every month around 10-15 curious individuals have gathered together to talk about a range of subjects. We have covered diverse topics ranging from crypto, immigration, women rights, investing, style, the future of work, global leaders, who are the worlds billionaires, what is going on in Yemen and more.
This month we are gathering to learn more about contemporary art with an up and coming and emerging Canadian artist who has SO, SO much to teach us and say about the topic.
Play by Play of this Creative Events Evening:
Meet at my apartment for creative introductions, a few healthy snacks and a mini curated mastermind and group discussion led by an award winning artist; Chris Lacriox.
After our mastermind we are all going to walk over to Access Gallery as a group (10 minute walk) to appraise and bid on some art. Silent auction fundraiser style. Where art pieces will be starting as low as $250. Sneak peak of some of them out here: https://auction.accessgallery.ca/
$50. Includes food, mastermind, tickets to silent auction and an annual membership to access gallery.
November 23 @ 5:30pm.
We start in Mount Pleasant. And will finish up in China Town. Addresses will be sent upon confirmation.
If you are receiving this invitation, it is because I think you would make a GREAT contribution to this event with your thoughts, presence and natural curiosity.
