Hola! I need to tell you about Tuesdays Together Barrie! I’m so excited about this!
Back in the fall of 2016 I learned about a huge organization of creatives on Facebook called the Rising Tide Society. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing this group is, and how many resources are offered to supporting and helping creative entrepreneurs.
In a nutshell, the organization has smaller community groups that meet the second Tuesday of every month in the spirit of community over competition. The groups are called Tuesdays Together. I had joined the Toronto chapter and was highly inspired by the monthly topics, the positive, engaging posts the leaders Jenn Kavanagh & Hattie Dunstan, and had already met some of the group in seminars at my professional print lab. Unfortunately I never was able to make a meeting due to the distance, so was only able to participate so much; and it burned a hole in my creative soul.
I late February I applied to be a leader for our area. We’re listed as the Tuesdays Together Barrie group on facebook and have 42 members, and our first meeting Tuesday March 8th!
If you are a creative entrepreneur running, or starting up a small business in the Barrie, Collingwood, Alliston, Innisfil, Newmarket, Orillia areas I urge you to take a look at what it we will be doing. The information and support provided within the Tuesdays Together groups is phenomenal. Even if you can’t make a meeting, I can promise you will benefit from hanging around on the Rising Tide web page, facebook page and the Tuesdays Together facebook group pages.
I want to add too, that this is not just a group for photographers! It’s for all creatives – florists, makeup artists, designers, stationers, musicians etc – the list goes on and on!
Our first meeting for the Tuesdays Together Barrie group is planned for the 8th at 7pm; and is planned to be held at my brand new studio at 29 Paris St Alliston, marking this group as my very first guests! We have 10 people going which I think will FILL my studio, so I better go and dig up some more chairs 😉
