What we're about

I believe that every single person on this planet is creative. At Vancouver Creative Types, we'll get together for various events that celebrate creativity and culture. If you want to use this group to network and identify possible artistic collaborators, feel free to do so. If you want to have intellectual conversations, or just meandering chats, you can do that, too. You can also just show up to have a good time by checking out an interesting event, museum exhibit, cafe, or restaurant. The aim is to have an optimistic, supportive environment for all manner of creative types - actors, filmmakers, artists, poets, writers, architects, graphic designers, programmers, etc. You do not need to be exceptionally creative to join this group and have fun. Everyone is welcome. :)
