Would you describe yourself as a creative entrepreneur, freelancer, filmmaker, media specialist, software engineer, marketer, animator, technologist, commercial photographer, videographer, designer, writer, maker, web developer or inventor? Or maybe you just like hanging out with other creative types? Then, this is for you!
Creative Third Thursdays is a creative networking event series brought to you by the Chilliwack Creative Commission and Cowork Chilliwack. Each monthly get together features a unique speaker followed by informal networking. Come meet and mingle with likeminded creative types on the third Thursday of every month!
Our speaker for April 20
Local creative entrepreneur Tim McAlpine will kick off the Creative Third Thursdays series with a talk about his annual nerdy Spring Break adventure to SXSW Interactive, a massive digital festival held annually in Austin, Texas. Tim will explain what SXSW (South by Southwest) is, it's cultural impact and the incredible economic effect that it has had in making Austin, Texas the fastest growing city in the United States and the next great technology and digital hub. Are there lessons that we can apply to Chilliwack?
