You know you want to get creative, and you wish you could do more to make a difference, but life just seems so busy. Why not honour yourself and set a date with yourself and like-minded folks? I started this calligraphy meet up because I needed the accountability to show up for myself and stretch my creative muscles, because I know it's good for my soul. I also wanted to create a simple and easy way to give back to the community, making it easier to be a part of a greater purpose.

The Social Calligraphy meetup is all about creativity, connection, and community. Come on out with your paper and pens! Join us for a totally casual “calligraphy jam” / “pen meet up” that offers you a supportive, encouraging space to light your creative spark, refresh your heart, and make a difference.

  • Get inspired by others’ energy, presence, and ideas.

  • Let a community of like-minded folks (i.e. pen geeks!)  blast you through the inertia of artlessness

  • Make connections with new calligra-friends and learn some new tips from each other

  • Speed date pens from others’ stashes (and let them try yours out too)

  • Collaborate and contribute to a purpose greater than yourself…donate your practice lettering to women and youth in need in our community.

Bring your positivity, and some pens (if you have them, though not necessary as there is a community toolbox you can dip into). Card stock will be provided to write messages of hope to marginalized women in need. We will also be writing the names of women in recovery which will be given to community partners who are supporting the women's healing and freedom. 

Join our community of calligraphy, lettering, and pen enthusiasts, novice to advanced all levels welcome. Curious and closet calligraphers especially welcome! Pretty much anyone who wants to get creative (maybe calligraphy is a new expression of creativity you want to try).

We’ll provide guided warm up and creativity exercises to get your heart and hands in the flow. Come for free-flow creative exploration and great connecting over conversation! Note that the facilitation will be focused more on expressive lettering. If you’re interested in formal technical instruction of how to write calligraphy, there are plenty of other beginner-friendly workshops you can take. Check those out here.

RSVP with your ticket by donating $5 to let us know you're coming. The full $5 ticket goes to fighting human trafficking locally and globally, with 100% going to support the work of Servants Anonymous, an organization with a proven long term track record of helping sexually exploited women start a new life of freedom.  

MEETUP LOCATION: Suite 106 - 1033 Haro St, 5 minute walk away from Burrard Skytrain downtown Vancouver
