swirl representing a creative conference coming to Halifax

Creative Conference in Halifax Survey

We’re planning an amazing conference in Halifax!

The East Coast Creative Collective  is in the preliminary stages of planning a one day conference aimed at inspiring creative professionals and visual artists. We feel there is a gap here in Halifax in regards to an event aimed at the creatively driven. Something locally run, that will get your blood pumping and inspiration flowing.

We have been running our monthly meetups for over 6 years, as well as numerous portfolio nights, panel discussions and lectures. Now let’s go REALLY big!

Getting the lay of the land is always key, so we are surveying the interest of bringing such an event to Halifax, and need your input!
