September 2016 Meetup

We’re back in acton at the Foggy Goggle. 7pm until Close

We took the summer off to recharge and eat WAY too much ice cream. Now we’re back and ready to pump the rest of your year full of creative hanging out.

This would be a great meetup to show off what you’ve been working on over the summer, or maybe forming an action plan with other artists on what you want to achieve for the rest of 2016.

Open to all creative types, as usual. Invite everyone, dang it. $2.00

Ready to rock it? RSVP Via Facebook.

Any individual or organisation can participate and use this opportunity to get the word out. Last year these ideas ranged from street art and urban gardens to beautification projects and social events that turned strangers into neighbours. No action is too small. Read More
