Creative Kapiti has a range of member events throughout the year to encourage connection and collaboration with other creatives in different disciplines, to provide knowledge sharing and upskilling opportunities, to reduce isolation and strengthen our cluster group.
Each month, we have M2M (Member to Member) Learning Lunches in keeping with our founding philosophy, Ma mahi tahi ka ora ai te iwi – By working together, we move forward. The purpose of these informal social gatherings is for members to share knowledge with other members on a particular topic. For example, making your own lightbox and DIY photography tips, or marketing tips for social media. These events are currently advertised to members through the Kapiti Creative Industries Membership Group Facebook page.
We are working on securing funding for creative business training workshops and sometimes we also have events where we tour to other regions to support our members showcasing their work.
