Calgary Creative Experience at Calgary Marriott Downtown

  By Ryley Smith

 

We are excited to announce we have collaborated with Socality x Canon Creator Lab to bring you a unique holiday creative experience at the Calgary Marriott Downtown. Join us on the afternoon of December 11th, 2022, where you’ll have the opportunity to connect with the local creative community while also getting your hands on a selection of Canon gear, including mirrorless bodies and the latest lenses!

This private event will centre around the Calgary Marriott’s rooftop skating rink as the sun goes down. Nearby Stephen Avenue will also be decked out in lights, and you’ll have a beautiful assortment of views and creative opportunities to shoot! 

Winter weather can be unpredictable, so you’ll have access to a room adjacent to the rooftop patio to warm up if it’s a little chilly and grab some snacks and hot chocolate. There will also be a few figure skaters on-site to photograph, and you’ll be able to bring your own skates if you’d like to take advantage of the rooftop rink!

If you’d like to borrow Canon equipment to shoot during the event, please bring your own SD Card and a valid piece of government ID. A limited amount of gear will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

When: Sunday, December 11th, 2022 – 2:00 – 5:00 PM MST

Where: Check-In on Calgary Marriott Downtown Rooftop (110 9 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 5A6)

Cost: Cover charge of $10, RSVP here to secure your spot, as space is limited.

Whether your interest lies in photography, video, social media, or another creative discipline, these events are inclusive and open to everyone, regardless if you’re just starting on your creative journey or have been in the industry for years.

This event will be great for anyone looking to:

  • Expand their creative network and meet others in the creative industry and community in Alberta and beyond.
  • Capture images/video in and around the rooftop patio and skating rink at the Calgary Marriott Downtown and the surrounding area in a fun and social atmosphere.
  • Try out a variety of Canon gear, including mirrorless bodies and lenses.
