KELOWNA - A Kelowna artist is trying to establish a drop-in place for those with a creative flair to have a monthly meeting of minds.
Liam Danger Park says he was inspired to start Creatique as an outlet and incubator for local artists.
"It's a social gathering for all kinds of creatives to come together and work, share their work, critique each other’s work and just hang out,” Park says of the meetings planned for the Rotary Centre for the Arts on the first Thursday of every month.
The first Creatique event took place earlier this month and Park says it had a small but enthusiastic turnout.
“It went pretty good, there was a lot of buzz around the community and a pretty good variety of people came to check it out."
His hope is that artists will use Creatique to give themselves a sense of urgency and deadlines to meet.
“A collective space where artists can push and pull each other in new directions has proven to be incredibly valuable in the past,” Park says.
Creatique #2 is set for Dec. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. Cost is $5, which goes to the Rotary Centre.
