Paris Lectures was a creative meetup & workshop series created by my partner and I in Paris, Ontario, a dream project from start to finish. Inspired by Stanford’s d.school’s creative warmups and my experience with Creative Mornings, we curated the kinds of events we wanted for our community, celebrating fellow local makers with complete creative freedom over every piece of promotional collateral. A microcosm of entrepreneurship and a bridge to authentic community, we kept the 20-lecture series running for just over two years, designing posters, hosting tech skills workshops, initiating fundraisers for causes in our community, and planning and running an incredibly fun, original and popular series of regular meetups. This laid the groundwork for additional local events to thrive, including the celebrated DT Concert series from our friends, Tim & Michelle.
