Hello. You’ve reached THE CREATIVEMIX HOTLINE, to learn about this year’s conference please press #1.

Oh man! We’re so freakin’ excited! November 3, 2011 is the day that creativity and collaboration collide in Vancouver in the name of helping creative people gain the inspiration and insights they need to thrive as artists and services providers. This is a cross-industry, non-profit-meets-business-sector mash-up that is unparalleled in Vancouver. It’s a professional development day and a creative showcase like no other.

Back for its third year, CREATIVEMIX will be held at the Roundhouse Community Arts Centre in Yaletown and it’s going to be bigger-n-better than ever! The team behind the conference is the same but with one very special difference – the event is now proudly produced through the innovative and dynamic theatre company Boca del Lupo.

There’s a TON of info to come, including the Open Call for Submissions to have your creative project or business featured in the CREATIVE EXHIBITION and the speaker roster of course! Be sure to follow the updates on the blog, on Twitter, or Facebook.

And because it’s fun… I did want to mention something that made us smile: Anoop Aulakh (Co-Founder of, Advisor at SIFE Simon Fraser, and a cool social entrepreneur guy) had this to say about his time at CREATIVEMIX:

“CREATIVEMIX provides a new way of looking at what a conference can be. From the speakers to the delegates, CREATIVEMIX brings together people from different spaces who are clearly passionate about what they do. Looking forward to seeing what next year brings!”

calendar-icon-nov04Big news! CREATIVEMIX is coming back for another round! Thursday, November 4th. Remember that. Write that down. Tell other people.

Now, you’re probably wondering what’s happening and who’s speaking . . . well, we can’t tell you that. There’s a lot we can’t tell you right now but not because we don’t know. Well . . . maybe it’s because we don’t know, or maybe it’s because we’re busy connecting and collaborating with a lot of cool peeps right now and it wouldn’t be fair to let the cat out of the bag. There will be interesting and useful updates every couple weeks from here on out so be sure to sign-up for our e-mail newsletter (or the RSS feed); that way you don’t miss anything. We’re aiming to launch the program and open registration May 1st.

We CAN tell you that we’re adding workshops and will be hosting a contest for the exhibition. Oh, and the conference will again be at the cool-n-funky Roundhouse Community Arts Centre! Helpful eh?

Registration is Open

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

creativemix-logo_90xIt’s been a long time in coming but it’s finally here: registration is now open for CREATIVEMIX (Vancouver’s Ideation Conference) taking place October 22, 2009 at the Roundhouse Community Arts Centre in Vancouver, BC. All you creative peeps who normally wait until the last minute will definitely miss out on this one if you don’t sign-up early so be sure to register quick (and save $20 before September 15). You can learn all you need to learn on the Register page.

Here’s the scoop on who this event is for, why it’s happening, and why it will be a one-of-a-kind conference:

CREATIVEMIX is a gathering of Vancouver’s emerging and professional creative minds. This one-day conference is dedicated to those who live and breathe ideation, creative expression, and believe the notion that inspiration is the most important asset. This conference is an interdisciplinary event, bringing together industry-leading idea makers who will share their experiences and explore a common thread of creativity.

This conference is for everyone who depends on their creative output – whether it’s a small or big part of their work. The goal is to help you take your creativity to the next level! We believe that the next level can be achieved through the collaboration and inspiration that comes from learning and working outside the box.

So often “creatives” gather to hone their technical craft; however, skills are simply not enough. It’s one thing to plan and deliver on a great idea but it’s the innovator who stands apart from the crowd. By leaving your skills at the door and focusing on expanding your creativity you’ll gain inspiration and a new mindset around this invaluable medium.

The program will consist of 12 speakers, from various industries, speaking to how they foster and manage creativity, fan new ideas into fruition, and promote the cross-pollination of creative concepts among different types of people and projects.
