August Creative Community Meeting

THEME: Peer-to-Peer Portfolio Review

Like speed-dating, minus the dating: we’re transforming our August community meeting into a peer-to-peer portfolio review. Learn the art of giving and receiving feedback as you share your work with others, while at the same time having their work shared with you.

All work-types are welcome, in any format and medium you like. If you want to bring a polished portfolio to show...great! If you want to only bring one project you’re halfway through completing that’s fine too.

How It Will Work: We’ll organize everyone into sub-groups, and then into pairs. Each pair will be given 30 minutes (15 minutes each) to share their work with each other. When the timer is’ll move onto another pairing and do it again. We’ll give everyone a worksheet to help facilitate the giving/receiving of feedback, so no worries if you’ve never done this before.

Set Expectations: We are not inviting ‘experts’ or creative directors who are hiring. We're doing this as a community. The purpose of this evening is to have an opportunity to share our work with our peers, and to learn about giving and receiving feedback.

Don’t Want to Share Your Work? Although we encourage everyone to bring work to share - we’ll have a sub-group for people who only want to review other people’s projects.
