What we're about

Cocktails with Creatives

Each month The Australian Arts Community (http://arts.org.au) hosts a mixer event at various bars and restaurants around Melbourne. This event is a great networking and social opportunity so bring your business cards and your ideas! Members and non-members alike are welcome.

This is purely a social meetup for those interested in meeting with arts, design, and business professionals, and of course the socialites of Melbourne!

Just drinks, chat, meet and greet!

If you're interested in meeting, networking, collaborating or simply making new friends with artists, designers, business entrepreneurs, and professionals then come along to our next social gathering and take the opportunity to mix with the raw talent of Melbourne.

Talent from all fields are invited to attend, including but not limited to, dance, fashion, graphic design, interior design, makeup, modelling, photography, product design, screenwriting, network marketing, small business, and IT.

I look forward to seeing you there!

"CROISSANTS with CREATIVES" An inconveniently early and extemporaneous convention of creatives - inclusive of the artists, artistes, punctual people-about-town, plus the frequently favoured benefactors des beaux-arts. A free social event I organise to gather other artists, designers, creative freelancers, arts workers, business owners, and entrepreneurs together to congregate with their contemporaries - and to find possible arts collaborators / clients / business partners, who vocalize the same vernacular, with whom they would otherwise rarely rendezvous. Croissants, coffee, and consummate conversation - all at the crack of dawn! + CROISSANTS with CREATIVES + Bonjour fellow artistes and artists alike! -_^ A new gathering of creatives has been launched for the early risers amongst us! Greet the mid-week morning light in the company of fellow creatives at the best cafes Melbourne has to offer... + CROISSANTS with CREATIVES + Morning events for artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, socialites, colleagues, and collaborators. ^_^ This event is a great networking and social opportunity so bring your business cards and your ideas!

"COCKTAILS with CREATIVES" - A Renaissance of Real Life Repartee An amusingly ad-hoc assemblage of artists - encompassing the makers, the musicians, and the sensitive socialites, plus of course, the entrepreneurs and ardent advocates of the arts. A free social event I organise to gather other artists, designers, creative freelancers, arts workers, business owners, and entrepreneurs together to congregate with their contemporaries - and to find possible arts collaborators / clients / business partners, who vocalize the same vernacular, with which they would otherwise rarely rendezvous.

ATTENTION ALL ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, and CREATIVES who would like to introduce themselves and display their dexterity, at this month's mocha meeting... SHOW YOUR ART! ON SUNDAY, we're again collaborating with CLAW Creative Studios - in order to show your art and design work to the other attendees of the gathering, via the studio projection equipment - plus, there is also the option to display your physical/non-virtual art to the general public, in their prime-position street-front art gallery during the Sunday afternoon of the event. ADDITIONALLY, I would also like to emphasise that non-visual artists are most certainly included, invited, wished for, and welcomed, such as writers, sound artists, and musicians, for example. BRING YOUR ART / DESIGN in digital format on a USB stick, in any common file type (JPG, MP3, MP4, MOV, etc.) and with the use of the studio audio/visual kit, you can show the group what you do! AFTERWARDS, we may also wander down the distinctive streets of Fitzroy to one of the many magnificent cafés in the area, in order to continue our cultured and collaborative conversations over barista brewed cafè lattes and cappuccinos... "COFFEE with CREATIVES" This arts/social event is a great networking and social opportunity so bring your business cards and your ideas! Meet with arts, design, and business professionals, and of course the socialites of Melbourne! Talent from all fields are invited to attend, including but not limited to, painting, sculpture, architecture, music, writing, performing arts including theatre and dance, film, photography, video production/editing, design, sequential art, conceptual art, printmaking, fashion, graphic design, interior design, makeup, modelling, product design, screenwriting, business, and IT. Looking forward to seeing you there! Nic P.S: Here are a few links to guides/tips for artists, designers, and authors considering presenting their work on Sunday, if you're not sure of what to say... Feel free to improvise, of course.

The RSVP numbers for this event in this group are only a small fraction of the total number of people who have RSVP'd they are attending from a variety of arts/design/creative groups on both Meetup and Facebook.
