You know those summer events that stand out from the rest and live on as the defining night of a particular summer?
You’re pretty much guaranteed to have one this Thursday (July 21).
The Summer of Creativity party is gearing up to be one of Toronto’s hottest summer events. The event will transform Polson Pier (11 Polson St.) into a French Riviera-inspired wonderland as it celebrates the city’s creative industry with a party that will make you forget you’re in Toronto. Get your tickets here before it’s too late.
The multi-faceted evening will feature music from Walshy Fire of Major Lazer fame and Toronto’s own DJ Starting from Scratch. A major draw of the event is a one-on-one dialogue between Vice and Director X, the creative mind behind Drake’s “Hotline Bling” music video, feature film Across the Line, and television series Lost Girl and Backstage.
Summer of Creativity will draw some of Toronto’s most forward-thinking creative minds, who will unite over cocktails to celebrate our ever-changing cultural landscape. In addition to good conversation (and ample networking opportunities), guests can expect a sensory overload thanks to the event’s focus on stimulating both body and mind.
Making for no shortage of Instagram material, the event will also feature interactive art installations by Michael Vickers and Oliver Pauk.
“Summer of Creativity is shaping up to be Toronto’s ultimate creative celebration,” says Kwesi Thomas, GM and Executive Producer of Five Points Experiential, the production company behind Summer of Creativity.
Summer of Creativity kicks off at 6:00pm, with an all-star panel discussion featuring; TAXI Executive Creative Director Jordan Doucette, Sid Lee SVP of Strategy Dustin Rideout, feature film and Stella Shoots director Tim Hamilton, S8 Creative Director Stefan Woronko, and Marketing Magazine Editor-in-Chief Shane Schick.
Then party the night away with us from 8:00!
Oh, and you may not want to schedule any early meetings; trust us when we tell you that this will be a party worth breaking your weekday curfew (and two-drink rule) for.
See you there.
