What we're about

Cookies & Community is a monthly event for creatives, freelancers, owners, tradespeople, and independent contractors to focus on building real relationships with like minded people. Everyone is welcome!!

In lieu of admission, we ask that everyone brings something tasty to share for our monthly potluck. It doesn't have to be baking either!

So, These events are free.. Is there a catch?

What people might not realize is, we spend a ton of our own time & money to host these events, simply because it's what Winnipeg desperately needs right now.

With similar events & Meetups being heavily monetized, it was difficult for the leaders of tomorrow to get the advice & help they need to succeed today, for free, from leaders like them, without being sold products or services they don't need or want.

Winnipeg needed a non-profit community that's ran 100% by the community. One that teaches the importance of equality, building real relationships, and has everyone working together to help eachother succeed.

As of 2017, we've founded "Community Barter & Networking Group", (cBANG): A collective of non-profit organizers creating movements all across Winnipeg, with the goal of working together to create a better tomorrow, for everyone. All of our organizers are vetted to have high moral standards, while focusing on helping others each in their own unique way.

As large as our events are, they only got to this size by word of mouth. If you support what we're doing, please take a few minutes to invite people you know personally.

We truly believe in friends helping friends, and can't wait to see you there.
