Each year we get closer and closer in Calgary to having good and consistent year-round events for local creatives. Park Forum is one of those missing pieces: happening this weekend (February 11-12) at the Olds College Fashion Institute in an attempt to gently transition us back from the sedentary winter period into the summer event season. Not quite a fashion show, but certainly no less valuable to the community and everybody in it, Park Forum focuses on curating a collection of inspiring local creatives to bring you their expertise on building and growing a business in the creative field.
While you may have been sedentary over winter, the presenters for the show certainly haven't been. The full list (shown below) features some of my favourite notable local people you may know such as Ania B, Shawn Freeman, and the good people behind Hedkandi Salon.
