But did you know that this month's Thousand Dollar Thursday is also being held in conjunction with Mark Hopkin's We Should Know Each Other Summer Tour? In the lead up to WSKEO #100, Mark is taking his WSKEO parties on the road, teaming up with various different groups doing amazing community-building things in the city with each location being a community gathering hub.
What is a We Should Know Each Other party? Since February 2008, local artist and community-builder Mark Hopkins has hosted ‘We Should Know Each Other’ parties in his living room, where hundreds of strangers have shared stories, laughter and new friendships. Everyone is invited to attend to stretch the limits of their social circles and to meet some of the diverse people that make up Calgary. Doctors, accountants, labourers and even politicians have attended in the past, and you're always guaranteed to meet someone new.
Dubbed Awesome at The AREA: We Should Know Each Other #99.3 will be the event where you can come check out the four Awesome Ideas being featured this month and then meet and mingle with people you've never met before in an awesome space dedicated to the arts, recreation, education, environment and agriculture communities!
