What about letting those who actually run the businesses have a go at
it, too? Art From the Unexpected is about challenging 20 of our
industry’s leaders, who don’t typically get to be visually creative in
their day-to-day, to create an original art piece. That’s not all. They
will join us in presenting their one-of-a-kind creation to you.
What motivates these leaders to be creative? What will they create? How
do they really think? How do they overcome creative challenges?

Ad Lounge’s “Art From the Unexpected“ is held in collaboration with SKETCH, a charity that values creativity as much as our industry does. We are honoured to collaborate with them on this gala event. SKETCH is a community arts initiative that creates opportunities for street-involved and homeless youth aged 15-29 by offering them tools to engage in the arts, a safe place to express and create, and opportunities to creatively integrate back into community life. All proceeds from the sale of artwork benefit SKETCH.
TICKETS AND REGISTRATION
$100 (+GST). Includes cocktail reception, delightful hors d’oeuvres, oysters, silent auction, and presentations by the business leaders.
