Presentation
Know Your Worth: Communication Strategies for Dealing with Clients From Hell

As the editor in chief of Clients From Hell, Kyle Carpenter knows your pain. For years now he has read every story about stiffed payments, unreasonable demands, sexist clients and requests for Comic Sans submitted to clientsfromhell.net . He knows how bad it can get out there, and he feels for each and every one of you creative workers dealing with bad clients.

In this talk, Kyle will go over some of his “favourite” stories from the Clients From Hell archives and discuss strategies for how to deal with troublesome clients, or even avoid them entirely. Laugh, cry, commiserate… then strategize.

Speaker Bio
Kyle Carpenter is an award-winning writer, content manager, and the editor in chief of Clients From Hell. He’s also a swell guy who recently moved to Halifax and can’t wait to meet you. Come hang out and share your war stories with him! Trust us, though – he’s heard them all.

Art Bash photo collage

On Friday, January 26th, E3C celebrated 6 years in the creative community with the first “Art Bash”.  Held at the The Dart Gallery, this party entertained and fed over 40 people on a cold winter night. There was a group art show as well as the Draw Brawl: a live drawing competition with contestants competing for prizes.

We want to deeply thank Shannon Dawn Ellis for the photography.

E3C Taxidermy Meetup

Feb 2018 Meetup: Romantic Taxidermy Still Life

7pm-Close, February 8th @ The Foggy Goggle

Back by popular demand! We’re setting up a beautiful assortment of taxidermy for you to draw, photograph or just enjoy. To get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, the arrangement will have a romantic theme… somehow.

All skill levels of drawing and photography are welcomed to come and take in this magnificent sight. Not much of a drawer or photographer? No problem – you do not need to participate in the still life if you have other creative skills or passion. There will be lots of space to hang out, converse and enjoy the atmosphere. All creative types welcomed.

$2.00 and 19+ as usual.
