We’re at it again!
Back by popular demand, we’re organizing another freelancer meet and greet next month. Our last event was such a success — about 30 freelance professionals in print, video, radio, web and mobile media, whether creative, journalistic or corporate — how could we resist?
More than just a social outing, our hope at Mediaville is to forge closer ties — especially business ties — between Montreal’s freelance media professionals. As with our first gathering, we’re limiting official attendance, this time to 40 people, since that’s what the pub’s terrace can comfortably accommodate. The details for RSVPing are below.
Location: Irish Embassy Pub, 1234 Bishop Street (Google Maps link)
Date: Wednesday, August 18
Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Fall professional development seminar
Last fall, Mediaville, in conjunction with its partners, hosted its first event: a half-day, weekend event, with two panel discussions, a workshop and networking party, attended by over 100 local freelancers (and a few out-of-towners, too). We’d like to repeat the experience, and make it even better. We’re looking for a couple, dedicated and resourceful people to help with organization and staffing (note that volunteers get free admission).
If you’d like to help out, volunteers can apply here.
