Date Friday, July 26, 2013 | 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Join us Friday, July 26 for special guest Alex V. Cook, who will share his secrets for living the creative life.
Living the creative life is a pursuit of something that isn't already there. It's a mindset and a practice that yields something bigger and deeper than money or popularity or acceptance. It is where everything can be new, electric, meaningful and poetic. It can also be pretty fun if you do it right. Alex will give his experiences and some suggestions on what to do and what not to do, how to get at the things that don't exist.
Tell a friend or bring a friend. Creative Louisiana is best shared.
The event gets started at 8:30 am for coffee and mingling, and the lecture portion of the event starts at 9:00 am. Everyone is off to work by 10:00 am and it's free!
Creative Louisiana is a monthly morning meetup for creative types. Join us!
