SAD Mag Comedy Night, May 13
SAD Mag's mandate is to advance artistic accomplishment among emerging creatives in Vancouver. Though they typically deal with the promotion of literacy, writing, art, and public discourse, this month they are jumping into the comedy scene bringing you an evening of comedic delight featuring local favs Jane Stanton, Ross Dauk, Alicia Tobin, Andy Kallstrom, Ben McGinnis and introducing Sophia Lucken. In addition to the comedy, drinks and magazines will be on sale, plus prizes for a few lucky folks! Check it out.
Space Launch Party, May 14
SPACE is launching a collaborative hub for creative nomads, and inviting you to join them in celebrating with good people, music, food, drinks, and some very special guest speakers. If you are a freelance artist, designer, or entrepreneur, (or anything in between) looking for shared creative space, a supportive community, health insurance, collaboration or new opportunities, then this event is for you. Get tickets.
Real Vancouver Writers' Series, May 19
Real Vancouver Writers' Series: Spring Showcase 2016 brings the brightest lights in the city's literary scene to the Untitled Art Space on Columbia Street for an evening of great people, exquisite writing, and craft beverages. You can check out the amazing line-up and more details on the evening here.
Techvibes Techfest, May 25
Techfest is a one-of-a-kind event that brings together the fastest growing companies and job seeking talent. During each Techfest, CEOs and founders pitch hundreds of eager potential employees on why today’s top talent should work for their company. Following the popular pop-up shop trend, Techfest will be taking over an empty warehouse on East 2nd Avenue in Vancouver. As always, they'll have a packed house full of job seekers with food-truck appetizers and local craft beer on tap to fuel the networking. I’ll be there.
