      Creative Collingwood Symposium

      Creative Collingwood Symposium Theme: The Art of Resilience Time: 6:00 pm-9:00 pm Doors Open at 5:30 pm Agenda:  Maker 5X5 | Keynote Presentation | After Party The 6th annual Creative Collingwood Symposium will leave you inspired and is not to be missed if you are an artist, creator, maker, musician, arts administrator, creative professional, educator or cultural enthusiast! We'll kick-off with a Maker 5X5 - 5 makers, 5 minute presentations & 5 minutes for Q&A each - followed by a talk interspersed with songs by gifted storyteller and Juno-nominated musician Peter Katz and finally an After Party catered by Low Down.  For the first time in six years, there is a $10 commitment fee to participate.  If this cost is prohibitive to anyone wishing to participate, please contact artsandculture@collingwood.ca. Meet our keynote:  Peter Katz, Juno-Nominated Musician & Storyteller Peter Katz has evolved from a nervous first-timer at an open mic night into to a JUNO Award, Canadian Screen Award, and two-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominated singer-songwriter with five albums under his belt. He has toured the world for the past decade in support of his music, sharing the stage and studio with legendary musicians like Academy Award winner and Grammy nominee Glen Hansard, and Garth Hudson (from The Band).  As a speaker, Peter is a four-time TEDx fellow, who has given countless talks and workshops across Canada. In this new talk, developed for change-makers and dreamers across industries, Peter uses his experience of surviving and thriving in the music business, which requires wrestling with the paradigm of a highly vulnerable career path and an outward perception of constant forward progress in order to be successful. How do you find the strength and courage to ‘stay in it’ within that tension? How do you stay open to the unexpected as your vision is unfolding? Through his powerful songs and stories, Peter pulls his audience in, and leaves them inspired to keep going against the grain and finding their own path.

The goal is to enlighten, engage and inspire conversation, ideas, connection and community. Our 5x5 will be moderated by Brandon Houston of Collingwood Foundry. Here are our Maker 5X5 presenters: After Party! Keep the energy and conversation going at an after party catered by Low Down, Collingwood's newest cocktail and snack bar. Enjoy complimentary Asian hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. Note that peanuts are used in snacks and are in the kitchen.
