Creative Drinks Presents: Collaborate or Die
Melinda Lyons | On 13, Mar 2015
The team at Creative Drinks is putting together another networking event on Thursday the 19th of March for Brisbane creatives and professionals and we would love all of you to attend!
Do you work at home and wonder if there is something better? Then this event is perfect for you.Â Gone are the days of companies starting up in their garage or mumâ€™s basement. In a modern creative society, start-ups are beginning in workspaces surrounded by other like-minded people and companies.Â Creative co-sharing workspaces provide a community for creative professionals, start ups, grad students and entrepreneurs to collaborate with, be inspired by and learn from each other.
These hubs of creativity, facilitate diversity and interaction by allowing businesses to grow together and support each other by using each others skills. Too often, creative minds are filled with brilliant ideas but little support and no idea of how to secure it. Creative co-sharing workspaces provide access to mentoring, networking and training opportunities that give the creative minds the support that they need. A photographer can gain support from a PR firm who in turn can gain advice from journalists and so on. With so many creative minds focused in the same space your creative projects can be built from the ground up with the support of those around you and their expertise influencing your work.
Creative Drinks has put together a panel of some of the brightest minds in Brisbaneâ€™s creative co-sharing scene. A Questions and Answers session will be held for Brisbaneâ€™s aspiring creative professionals to learn more about creative co-sharing workspaces and how they can benefit their work.Â
Jock Fairweather, the founder of Little Tokyo Two, will feature to explain his exclusive members based workspace for Generation C (Creatives). General managerÂ Peta EllisÂ will represent River City Labs. This company focuses on promoting and developing early stage and start-up businesses and entrepreneurial activity in the mobile, internet, telecoms and technology sector of Brisbane. Our panel will also be host to Anna Rooke, CEO of Creative Enterprise with over 20 years experience in leading commercialisation, incubation and business development initiatives in the UK and Australia. Our last panelist will be Matthew Dunstan author of The Co-working Revolution. This panel is brilliant and is sure to give you all the knowledge you require to decide if the co-working environment is for you.Â
This networking event will begin with the panel discussion, which will run for 40 minutes, before moving upstairs to Creative Enterprise Australiaâ€™s Coterie, their shared co-working space, for drinks, canapÃ©s and networking with like-minded people. The Coterie is home to creative entrepreneurs and professionals such as Peppermint Magazine and Haystack and will be open for tours.
Tickets are $65 with early bird tickets for $55. The price of the tickets includes the panel Q&A and the networking function with drinks and canapÃ©s. Buy your tickets quick as this is an exclusive event with only 70 tickets available.Â
The event will start promptly at 6pm with the panel discussion being held in the Glasshouse space and will then move up to the Coterie, a co-working space for creatives, where you will have the opportunity to network with other attendees, view some local artwork on display and enjoy drinks and nibbles.Â
