Event description

Description

Do you tell a good tale? For our summer Raconteurs event we are inviting the public – you! your neighbour! your kid! – to make us laugh, make us cry, or simply make something up. Anything goes, as long as the speaker tells it well. No slides, just stories. We'll have 5-15 speakers for about five min each. We love the variety at these kinds of events and *always* leave feeling energized and inspired. We hope you do too.

If you think you have a good story to tell, we'd love to hear what you've got! Chosen speakers will get a pair of free tickets. Submissions will be open until 11:59pm on July 1.

Submit a story here.

Shout out to our event sponsors Shopify, Studio50, and Creative Vision Optical <--- All the best people!

Where did the free tickets go?
For two glorious years we are proud to have hosted Paris Lectures as a free event. Now, the nominal ticket fees go toward our running costs. We never want money to be a barrier to attendance though, and there are many ways to get free tickets. Send us a note to find out more.



Logistics
Doors open at 7:30 for mingling and the presentations will begin at 8:00pm. Come early to order a drink, say hello to us, and meet the speakers.



Venue & parking
This event is hosted in Dominion Telegraph Centre across from the Arlington on the corner of William and Grand River Street North. Enter the venue via the side door on William Street and take the elevator up one floor or follow the stairs up. Our room overlooks the lovely Grand River. Public parking is available for free on Grand River Street or in the municipal parking lot one street west off Broadway.



Please don't print your ticket
No need to bring a paper ticket, we will have your name on a list. If you find yourself unable to make it, we are happy to issue a refund if you give us at least 48 hours notice, which will allow us to re-release your ticket/s. Just let us know!



What is Paris Lectures?
The purpose of our creative meetups is really simple – share what people in the community are working on, inspire each other with everyone's many talents, and simply get to know our creative neighbours in a casual, social setting. These events are hosted by the Paris-based graphic and web design studio, Jane & Jury.

Help us spread the word, do tell your friends and invite them to this event. All are welcome (events usually run late, but babies and kids are very welcome too).
