*Chirp*

This is disappointing. If your still interested or if anyone is interested in getting this going I would be game. After attending a IDSA presentation in Seattle last year I became very aware of the lack of a design scene in Vancouver. Makes me sad.

Is anyone attending planning on attending the Grad Show at Emily Carr, or the upcoming screening of Objectified?

This should be a pretty good event for ID in Vancouver.
According to the film's website the show is sold out.

I think the local BCID chapter is suggesting drinks at Toby's Pub (a couple of blocks away) after the show. I'm sure it will get announced during the evening.

Objectified + Pecha Kucha

Anything happening lately @ VanCity? I agree, there should be more of a community here. I have a bunch of classmates @ ECUAD that's been talking about starting a local community, even potential design "competitions" open to everyone local just to get things started. But it all comes down to the usual, if you want it done you have to do it yourself.

So, anybody up to try and starting a local community with semi-regular get social gatherings, etc? I can get a bunch of present and past Emily Carr to join in, but don't really know anyone in the field outside school.

Nicanor -

I would suggest you get in touch with/join the local BCID chapter. They try and organize events for the local ID community and are always looking for people to help cultivate new ideas and build the community.

The most recent event was an opportunity to collaborate with the IDSWest show in turning old phone booths into something "new" - The results will be shown at the IDS show this fall.

Their next event is a BBQ at Trout Lake on August 26th co-hosted with the local graphic design chapter.

Next week is Emily Carr's grad presentations, from tuesday to thursday (roughly 9-4 daily, 30 minutes per presentation). It's open to the public if anyone's interested, will be held at the motion caption room upstairs in the North Building.

Mine will be on Thursday about 11am.

Emily Carr is soon having their Industry Night, invite only preview for the design grad show. It'll be held friday April 30th. If anybody is interested message me and I can put you on the contact list. Good way to network other design-related people in Vancouver... and to check out this year's grad projects (including mine).
