Hey, creative people!
It’s been a week since our January event and about time we summarized it for you, before our official video is released. This is also gonna be a bit of a recap on how a #cmgbg event works as well; something to refer your beloved co-workers, clients, friends, or friendly strangers to, if they want to know more about the what’s and the how’s, and so on.
The volunteer team met up at Stenhammarsalen early Friday morning, around 7. We got everything together and ready for opening. Photographers Julia Reinhart & Petri Olderhvit got their amazing exhibit in order as well.
At around 7:50, we opened the doors for all you guys to come inside the Gothenburg Concert Hall. Spirits were high, naturally, because you’re all awesome people!
You checked in with our volunteers inside the doors, who had lists and lists with your names on them.
After check-in, you proceeded up the stairs, to the nametag table and the wardrobe area. At the nametag table you got to create your own nametag, by writing your name on a sticky-sheet, and writing down your answer to the question of the month.
This month’s nametag question was: What is the greatest mystery of all time? Your responses, of course, were splendid, and sometimes hilarious. We’d say we’re sorry about making you think such deep thoughts before your first cup of coffee. But we’re not.
Once you’d divested yourselves of your coats and gotten your nametags sorted, some of you hung around to chat for a bit. Most, however, ambled along to the breakfast area, where there was some brilliant coffee, courtesy of Per Nordby. You can order his luxurious Crencencio blend, and other types of coffee, at his website: https://www.pernordby.com/
Along with the coffee, you got a tasty sandwich, wrapped in info about this month’s breakfast sponsor: WinterBoost. WinterBoost is a cool event that’s meant to function as a mental vitamin injection this winter, on February 7th to be exact. So, surf on over to: http://winterboost.se/ and secure your ticket now!
In the breakfast area, you had a lot of interesting conversations, some were about nametags, others, not so much.
The breakfast area was also where the photo exhibit took place. And, not to brag, but we kinda think you liked it a lot. We certainly did.
At 08:20, the first bell rang, and we opened the doors to Stenhammarsalen. You were great at finding seats in a timely fashion, thanks for that!
Christer started talking at 08:30. Then we had three brave ladies come on stage who all made a 30 second pitch.
Malin Rockström (@funkymellie) was looking for an art director internship.
Alonnika Ritchey (@alonnika) was looking for a copywriter internship.
Joanne Lau (@tictactoc) moved here from Canada in December and was looking for new people to hang with and a job in UX design.
Headliner Isadora Wronski told us all about the Burning Man festival.
Burning Man has 10 Principles: Radical Inclusion, Gifting, Decommodification, Radical Self-reliance, Radical Self-expression, Communal Effort, Civic Responsibility, Leaving No Trace, Participation, and Immediacy.
We thought its sounded amazing. Learn more about it at the website: http://burningman.org/ And, hey! There’ll be a Burning Man event in Stockholm on March 4. Don’t miss it!
Thanks to volunteer event photographers Magnus Rönnkvist, Ola Dyrhill & Sina Farhat for all the great photos!
