Some great things happening this month.
First of all, let me plug the Florida Creatives Happy Hour. Our next
event is Monday, Jan. 21st from 6-9PM at the Crooked Bayou. This event
has become such a strong driving force in our community, and it's time
to expand. I invite all of you to invite one friend from a non-
technical creative field - visual art, poetry, acting, a film, dance,
journalism, architecture, etc. If you are one of these people, invite
one of your friends. If your friends aren't interested, we should
figure out what we can do as a group to make them interested. For a
number of weeks I was trying to recruit people to help me with a
poster campaign. I also remember a few people asking me if they could
help us design a better Florida Creatives web site. I haven't
Second I have to mention the BarCamp planning party Saturday, Jan.
12th. Gregg Pollack and his wife are opening up their home to us again
to discuss possibilities for a second BarCamp this spring. Check out
BarCampOrlando.com for details.
I am very excited about this next event. Johannes Grenzfurthner,
better known as a member of the Austiran art collective monochrom are
visiting Orlando and they're hosting an event at Redlight Redlight on
Tuesday, Jan. 22nd. According to Ian Monroe (Orlando Weekly), if
you've never heard of monochrom, "then you haven't been paying
attention." He's quite right. He copied several links to their far-
reaching and thought-provoking work in a recent email that was copied
to the Florida Creatives mailing list (you are a subscriber, right?) I
invite you to check them out and DO NOT MISS this event.
We also have our likemind.orl coffee hour on Friday, Jan. 18th at B &
S Daily Market from 8-11AM. Coffee is sponsored, and Manny also has
treats, magazines, hot dogs and pressed sandwiches. This event is
centered a bit more around coworking instead of socializing, but
plenty of that happens as well.
A similar type event happens in Winter Park every Tuesday: Cup-O-Code.
This event was started by Mike G of CFPHP (but he's left us for
greener pastures in NYC), and happens every Tuesday from 7-9PM or as
long as Steve lets us use their private conference room.
Also very cool and happening this month are two events that relate to
the creative process: one in advertising and the other in theatre.
AD2 Orlando (Young Professionals in Advertising) is hosting and event
January 9th at the Orlando Sentinel called From Concept to Completion.
Featuring local agencies Fry Hammond Bar and Knight, they will "re-
live the experience of creating the project from start to finish,
including how various elements of the campaign were developed and
produced." The whole thing gets kicked off at 6PM. RSVP required.
The Mad Cow Theatre is hosting an Inspiration Salon with the creative
team behind their upcoming production, Life is a Dream, a classic play
from Spain. Join Artistic Director Alan Bruun, the cast of Life is a
Dream, and special guests Rob and Tara Anderson, who have produced
shows like Urinetown, Sweeney Todd, and She Loves Me. Tickets are $5.
If I'm forgetting something huge, please let me know. If you have
something you want plugged to the creative community, we're listening.
