What: Looking for some inspiration, a place to write that isn’t your kitchen table, or simply some guidance on a writing project? For only $5 you can join White Space Writers every Tuesday morning and receive a work space, unlimited coffee, accessibility to writing resources (aka they will look over a piece you’re working on) and a writing prompt – if that’s what you’re interested in. Plus, you might even make a new creative friend or three, which is priceless!
What: Think think think! Dig into your think-tank and remember all your favourite Disney Princesses, characters, evil step mothers and sorcerers, and compete to win hundreds of dollars worth of Disney prizes. Team sizes range from one to six people.
What: For the entire month of February, various cafes, restaurants and chocolatiers are featuring their very own creative twists on a traditional hot chocolate. Spend an afternoon touring the city, trying out the various concoctions, and voting for your favourite – just be prepared for a serious sugar coma afterwards. Proceeds from each drink will go towards Calgary Meals on Wheels.
