Join us for Creative Edinburgh's Summer Party on Thursday 18th July 2019 at Whitespace for an evening of creativity and celebration!
Our first Summer Party is the chance for Edinburgh’s creative community to gather and get back to the root of creativity. Leave the nitty gritty, business admin at the door and join us for an evening of conversation that encourages playful new ideas and out-of-the-box thinking.
We’re delighted to welcome innovative artist and designer Dominic Wilcox as our guest speaker. He'll be taking us on short adventure in creativity, inspiration and how to find ideas. We’ll also have activities to spark your imagination and food + drink to fuel you throughout the evening.
Guest Speaker: Dominic Wilcox, artist and designer
ECA alumni Dominic Wilcox works between the worlds of art, design, craft and technology to create innovative, thought provoking and surprising objects. His work includes the world's first pair of GPS shoes, tiny sculptures balanced on the hands of watches and a stained glass driverless sleeper car of the future currently on show at the Science Museum, London.
Dominic has a passion for spreading the word about being creative and how to find ideas, giving talks around the world including speaking at the World Summit on Innovation at the UN General Assembly building in New York. He is also on a mission to inspire children to become the creative thinkers and inventors of the future with his worldwide Little Inventors project that turns children's ideas into real objects.
Dominic’s talk will be followed by a Q+A with CE Director, Yasmin Sulaiman, plus you’ll get the chance to ask your questions too! There’ll be the opportunity to innovate and get inspired, not only with Dominic’s talk, but also with activities throughout the evening (more details to follow).
