EVENT DETAILS

For Toronto's creative entrepreneurs*. On September 8th, we're inviting a collective of Toronto's inspiring creators to share their life stories, how they just did it, and what lessons they learned on the way. Learn from speakers about how their life experiences enabled them to create award-winning work and shaped their creative ventures.

Aside from hearing from speakers, you'll meet other passionate creators from Toronto (and beyond). Connect and build new relationships within the diverse community that this city has to offer.

*creative entrepreneurs = remarkable artists, retailers, graphic designers, illustrators, fashion designers, creative directors, and more.
