2018 Calendar Of Events
Wednesday July 25: Drink & Draw
Consider this ‘E3C Lite’: no $2.00 cover, no sign-in sheet. Just you and other mark makers doodling and drawing. Stay the whole night or just stop by.
We hope to do another Drink & Draw. Stay tuned!
Thursday September 27th: JeopARTy Event
The world’s first “JeopARTy” is coming to Halifax, and we know you want in on this! A special event to kick off the 2018/19 E3C meetup season, this evening event is sure to turn your Thursday night into a riot. What would happen if trivia, Pictionary, Balderdash and Jeopardy had a baby? This month’s E3C meetup, that’s what.
Thursday October 18th: Hal-Con Scifi Drink & Draw
Ignite your imagination, release your inner geekdom and hang out with other artists drawing inspiration from scifi and fantasy. Open to all levels of artists. Offered in a pub space so small sketchbooks only, please. At The Foggy Goggle.
Thursday November 1st: E3C Design Drink & Discuss with guest speaker Sunil Sarwal
A meetup for all designers: graphic, product, web, game and UI/UX. Meet other local designers in a non-networking setting: this is all about fellowship and getting to know one another.
In a casual talk for designers and other professional creatives, brand consultant Sunil Sarwal will discuss Imposter Syndrome, and how it affects creatives and their careers, both for bad, and for good. Examples and lessons drawn from his career as Creative Director of Montreal’s award-winning branding and packaging agency the Small Monsters. To be held at the Foggy Goggle.
December: Charity Drive (date and location TBD)
Each December E3C selects a charity with its roots in the arts. Charity to be announced in November along with suggestion donations for our drive!
