Hi! We’re the Creative Kick, the folx who brought you the “Selling Your Work Online” panel in July. While we continue to consider how to a approach an indoor event, why not hang out with out on the beautiful Common?

Stay as short or as long as you’d like.

We do our best to meet at Cunard Street side close to Roundabout (see image on our site), but depending on sporting events or who else is on the Common, we may not be at that exact location. Keep an eye out for a red Creative Kick banner!


What happens at an outdoor Kick event?

Depending on how many people show up, we usually create a horseshoe or split into smaller groups for causal conversation. We usually do a round of introductions at 6:45pm. There will also be a big sheet of paper for you to write down your socials accounts so other attendees can follow and support your work.


What considerations do you have for Covid?

Everyone has different comfort levels, even with vaccination. We ask that you always check in with the people you talk to about their comfort level around hugs, handshakes, petting their dogs, how close you are to talk to them etc. We recommend bring a towel or blanket to sit on, which often acts a nice ‘safety bubble’ of spacing. Please respect those that decide to wear a mask. We’re all friends here!


Who should go?

Students, professionals and the retired. Designers, illustrators, photographers and videographers. Painters, drawers and those that craft. Those new to Halifax/Canada and those who’ve lived here for years. Come with a few friends, or come by yourself (we’re friendly and will let you right in!)

We’re about inspiring the creatively driven. While we focus on the commercial and visual arts, we’re happy to have anyone who’s willing to talk with fellow creatives.


How do I RSVP?

Just show up! If you can’t seem to locate us, consider yourself lucky to have taken a leisure walk around the beatiful Common.


Is there a rain date?

Nah. We will send a newsletter update around 4pm on the day of the event if it is cancelled due to weather. We’ll also let people know through our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.
