Re: Calling all Creatives

Bumpity!

Don't forget to mark your availability on the Doodle link above. We have some interesting PMs on possible collaboration and sponsorship for our events. Impromptu meetings planned for those who might want to get involved in organizing the events. Unfortunately, this thread format is not ideal for that kind of discussion. So let's do so organically - PMs and chats over drinks.

Cheers!

Re: Calling all Creatives

For such a large thread and apparent interest, I am surprised how few have signed up to the doodle so I thought it was time for another bump!

Re: Calling all Creatives

Ohhh, thanks for the bump Galeta, great idea Phos - I'm so happy to have JUST seen this thread and not missed out!

I paint, draw, make jewelry, belts, handbags etc http://www.tsam.ca and would love to be involved and help in any way I can. I also have experience with publishing, graphic design and event planning... but am only here in Zurich till the end of May, then gone till November.

Looking forward to being inspired by all the creativity round here!
Cheers,
Sam

I am an Actor...my body is my tool.

Is Switzerland ready for bohemian types filled with the fervent need for self expression?

Re: Calling all Creatives

Wow... serious talent in our midst!

Joski7 - The Mena Survari portrait - wow! How do you do that? All in photoshop? I'm mystified...

ninjela - love your map necklaces!

Melissa Sue - wonderful soft sculpture (I was a textile major, I'm digging your processes)

Thanks for the inspiration everyone, wish I had found this on a rainy day... can't bear to be inside this afternoon, I'm going out for some SUN!

Related to this topic, I will have a lunch and an afternoon coffee meeting in Zurich tomorrow.

For lunch, time is at 12:00. Place to be determined.

For coffee, I think around 14:30. Place to be determined.

If you are interested in joining, drop me a line tonight, and I will loop you in.

Re: Calling all Creatives

- board director of a West End theatre

- advertising copywriter

- ex-owner of an ad agency in London

- ex board director of two top contemporary dance companies (lea anderson's)

- lots of other arts-based stuff

THis sounds like an excellent idea.

I'm interested...

Re: Calling all Creatives

I'm currently writing my first novel... but I live in Vaud. Is this meeting going to be in Swiss Germany? I can't really get there - any chance of a breakaway group in Lausanne or Geneva?

I guess I'll PM all the respondents individually.

Sure. A number of the respondents are from your area. Sounds like you should have a meeting there as well.

Chime on the Doodle link, then see if a critical mass will form.

Re: Calling all Creatives

Phos - We are in for 2 people. Sent you a PM about a possible venue in Kreis5. Pretty easy to get to as it is between Hardbruecke train station and Escher Wyss Platz (Tram 4 and 13).

Cheers,

Okay. Just coordinating plans.

@All, a few of us will meet for lunch, and/or coffee to discuss ideas for planning an event. Anyone who is interested in attending at this stage is welcome to do so.

Thanks very much, well I start by sketching the outlines, then slowly fill in with colour (using a low opacity brush) then zoom in 100% to fill in the details - I think my Mena Suvari portrait is one of my weaker ones though! But thank you for saying

Re: Calling all Creatives

It goes without saying that I'm a jack of all trades and multitalented man so I should give others chance

If you feel though there is a room for racket ball skills, my wife can happily assist with a very high standard of tennis.

P.S. Is it going to be similar event to X-factor or "die Schweiz has got talent" ?

Re: Calling all Creatives

Sorry, I have another question: Is this going to be a morning, afternoon or evening event? I've guessed at late afternoon / early evening for my availability on that Doodle poll thingy...
