What we're about
Check out our monthly newsletter: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cBANG/2154069584869740/
We felt that Winnipeg needed a monthly event for creatives, freelancers, owners, tradespeople, and independent contractors to connect.
Working many hours non-stop can wear you down, and nothing screams awesome than spending a day with like minded people, building real genuine relationships to last a lifetime.
We don't make any money off of these events. In fact, we spend quite a bit out of pocket, plus weeks of our time, just because this is exactly what Winnipeg desperately needs, right now.
With so much monetization happening, Winnipeg needed a community that was completely ran by the community instead of a private entity. One that teaches the importance of everyone working together to succeed, instead of 1 person profiting off the backs of many.
We're also actively looking for individuals who believe in our cause and are interested in spending just a few hours each month to help see it succeed. Whether it's putting up posters, advertising online, or being a journalist & helping with our monthly newsletter. Every bit counts, and you decide what you want to help with. (It's kind of like a do-ocracy, where the only way something gets done is when members simply go & do it.)
As much effort as we put into advertising, nothing brings more friends together than word of mouth. Seriously!! With social media robots controlling what we see, plus people having very busy day to day lives, it wasn't until we started sending messages 1 on 1 that we've had a 100x increase in responses! So please, the only way we can grow is by each of our members taking a few minutes to invite friends personally.
Sure, what we're achieving sounds huge. But it's not that crazy with each & every new friend we make along the way. Truly friends helping friends, and it will mean a lot to everyone to see you there.
