Paris Lectures

Paris Lectures, a creative meetup & workshop series, was a dream project from start to finish. Not only did my partner and I get to curate the content we wanted for ourselves but we had complete creative freedom over every piece of promotional collateral. A microcosm of entrepreneurship and a bridge to an authentic community of fellow creatives, we kept the series running for over two years, designing posters, hosting workshops, initiating fundraisers for causes in our community, and planning and running an incredibly fun series of regular meetups.

My role:  Founder, graphic & web design, events

We grew the attendance from 13 people in a room above the hotel bar to a regularly sold-out 150 person venue, quite the achievement in a small town of 12,000. More than that, we helped forge connections between people in our community, connections that led to introductions, or jobs, or new collaborations. Long live Paris Lectures.

Speakers included designers, writers, coffee makers, community advocates, scientists, industrial designers, and neighbours from up the street. We aimed to create a platform that didn’t otherwise exist in Paris, a place to tell stories and share ideas. One of our favorite events was Raconteurs, a storytelling event that prompted belly laughs and tears alike.
