If you are a young mover ‘n shaker in Montreal there is one hot ticket event you should know about. Les Jeudi D’Apollo is a monthly event thrown by Eric Sicotte and l’Agence Apollo and it’s a networking event unlike any other in Montreal. The evening features local up and coming Montreal artists and entrepreneurs and gives them the opportunity to present their latest projects to a room full of other young affluent Montrealers. This Thursday’s event marks the 1 year anniversary of Les Jeudis D’Apollo.
The evening takes place at the offices of L’Agence Apollo (in old Montreal) which doubles as an event space as needed. The setting itself is absolutely stunning, as the open air loft is illuminated by about 25 chandeliers and the exposed wood and brick really bring character to the space. The food and drinks are kept flowing by local sponsors while people are given the oppourtunity to mingle between musical performances and presentations. There are tasting stations set up featuring delectable treats as well as make-up and styling stations to help you look your best!
Last month ForgetTheBox members Jason C. Mclean and myself were there with our newest partner in crime, Jordan Arsenault (editor 2Bmag.com) to present our latest project, ItCouldGetWorse.com. Our new website is a single serving site dedicated to fighting the Conservatives Crime Omnibus Bill. We managed to stir up some great awareness against the bill and are still fighting to stop it, but ItCouldGetWorse.com will soon be taking up other causes, and will be acting as the activist wing of the FTB network.
This anniversary edition of Les Jeudi Apollo is about bringing together many young artists, entrepreneurs and even activists so that we can talk about our projects, and meet other young doers. At this month’s event we will be treated to presentations by Marc Andrew, Zwerg, Eric Santerre, Dan Green and DJ Justin Adler AKA James Krown among many others. Below is the flyer for the event with too many names to list off here. Hope to see you there!
