Sooooo. Let me just say this: I don't drink. Not really. I sip. Booze makes my post-west-nile heart go all wonky, so....no. BUT!....I DO hang out with very cool people. I DO make a point of trying to show up when there's a Gathering of Creatives. If that term gives you hives, just think "anyone with a passion for anything". There. Better? Thought so. Here's the scoop:
The American Institute of Graphic Artists (Denver) decided to test the waters in Northern Colorado and guess what they found? Amazing, motivated people who are more than willing to GET OUT THERE and mingle, socialize, play. Get to know each other and possible do cool stuff. Do you have to be a designer? HELL no. Just show up, but NOT UNLESS YOU REGISTER. Not Kidding. If you just "drop by" without registering (link below), you will be beaten and tossed into the street, cause that's how we roll. Okay, that's how I roll. There are only SO Many spaces at the table people.....Read all of the stuff below and join us. You now have NO excuse for feeling like you're a wandering nomad longing for your Tribe. The "Drink & Draw" events are for everyone. The BUZZ would be for those of you who actually make art your living wage. All 3 of you.
What if you can't draw? WHO CARES??!!!!....there will be people who draw like Angels, there will be people who draw kindergarten stick figures. Drawing? SO not the point.
The official, Serious Stuff from the AIGA.....
AIGA CO is breaking new ground in 2014 by offering two of our more popular events (Buzz and Drink&Draw) in four Northern Colorado communities: Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and Longmont. These events will be held at a variety of locations during March, April, and May.
Getting down to Denver can be painful and we feel your pain, so we are bringing AIGA CO up to your home turf. Check the dates and get ready to mix and mingle, expand your professional connectivity, and strengthen your local creative communities. Everyone is invited to attend any event, so bring your friends!
