Welcome to ALCHEMY! This is an event where you'll get to meet and connect with a diverse group of creative-minded people.
The premise is simple - kind of like speed dating/networking, but better :) After a little chatting and instruction, everyone will be given a short creative exercise to work on in pairs for about 3-5 min and for multiple rounds. At the end of each round, people will change up who they are paired with and start the exercise again. After the rounds are finished, those who are interested in connecting further with those they worked with can get their contact info and chat. And if you want to meet someone who you didn't get paired with, you can talk to them too!
We welcome creatives of all sorts...writing, poetry, visual art, music, sound, photography/video, fashion, performing arts, design of all sorts, craft, architecture, film/TV/radio, beauty/hair/makeup, food/drink, dance, healing arts, storytelling, burlesque, drag, astrology/tarot, woodworking, metallurgy, glass art and I'm sure I'm missing many more!
This is a free event, with donations welcomed! Since this is the first one, pizza, beer/wine, and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided but feel free to bring food/drink/cups for yourselves and/or others! We're keeping it very casual.
