Part of the purpose of Cochrane Arts is to promote and build community.
One of the ways I want to explore that is to host Get Acquainted events where people can come and meet others from the arts community.
These events will include sharing a simple meal (like soup and bread), introductions, some fun ways of getting to know each other, a time for exploring thoughts and ideas about the arts in Cochrane, and time to mingle and see who you might want to add to your life as new friends, contacts, collaborators, etc.
For now, these events will be by personal invitation, and fairly small and intimate – partly due to space, but also to give us more of a chance to connect on a personal level.
We started with a small group in November over a simple pot-luck supper and had a great visit with each other.
The next Get Acquainted event is scheduled for Monday, December 4 at my teaching studio at 42010 Cochrane Lake Road.
I don’t have a date yet for January, but I want to start the year off with an invitation to the whole arts community to come together and start exploring possibilities. This will likely be hosted by one of our arts businesses (just need to finalize some plans).
So starting in the new year, if you are an arts group or business – or personally – and you would like to introduce yourself, your group or your business to the arts community, you would be welcome to host one of these events. Please contact me to make arrangements.
If you would like to come to one of these events, please fill in your information below and I’ll send you a personal invitation for an upcoming event.
I look forward to having you come.
