The Lab at Velocity Art and Design

If you’re interested in networking with local design-minded folks or just in finding out what’s new in Seattle’s creative community, then mark your calendar on August 20 for The Lab, held at the fabulous Velocity Art and Design.

From The Lab’s Facebook page, The Lab is “a series of events at our South Lake Union showroom which will feature guests integral to shaping our landscape here in the Northwest and beyond, while helping to foster opportunities for creative thinking, networking, and inspiration.”

The theme of the August Lab is “Bring + Brag.” Ali from Velocity described it to me as a “a show and tell featuring locals artists and designers who will have a few minutes to talk about their creative endeavor or business.  It’s a way to see what’s going on in Seattle’s creative community, network, and be inspired.” Sounds fun, no?

The Lab is a relatively new event that was born from the Design*Sponge Biz Ladies meetup in Seattle earlier this year. A little history into how it came to be can be found here.

I went to last month’s Lab where the topic was a Q&A with Emira Mears and Lauren Bacon, authors of The Boss of You. As far as networking events go, this one was nice and informal, with some time at the beginning to mingle and browse. And a perk of having it in the Velocity showroom is that you get to sit on their beautiful modern furniture for the talk.

Event Details:
Wednesday, August 20, 6-8pm
