Make Something Mondays
On the second Monday of each month, Make Something Edmonton hosts a gathering of Edmontonians doing a particular type of making. The idea is to help you connect with people who share your passions and inspire you to turn your ideas into reality.
Fashioning the Future
Only a few years ago, being a fashion designer in Edmonton meant having a few local, loyal clients and selling at farmers' markets to make ends meet. Fast forward to the present and many of the city's designers are gaining international attention and competing in a global market. What has propelled the industry forward over the last five years? How do we keep the momentum going? We're bringing together a group of Edmonton designers, entrepreneurs and industry professionals to talk about what lies ahead.
It's going to be a fascinating discussion, but as an extra incentive to wake up early we've partnered with PARK to offer attendees $10 off when you buy a ticket to the Edmonton Artist and Designer Forum on August 16.
Breakfast: 7:30 AM - 8:00 AM
Edmonton Fashion Panel: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
