Outdoor Studio offers camping trips where artists, creatives and adventurers take off into the great Canadian outdoors to do what they do best – create.
A lot of creative work happens indoors on our computers and in beautiful studio spaces, but we believe that a change of environment is key to refueling creativity. Whether you’re an artist, a designer or an accountant-by-day-photographer-by-night, as long as you’ve got a creative mind, we’re stoked to share with you the inspirational outdoors.
Each of our trips are designed to include three parts:
What’s a camping trip without getting down and dirty with nature? Partnering with local partners and guides, there will be an opportunity to play outdoors with activities, like hiking, yoga, or stand up paddle boarding. Get ready for the full camping experience where we’ll sleep under the stars and cook over the campfire together.
We believe that inspiration is everywhere and can be found in everyone around us. That’s why we make sure to program creative sessions with contemporary artists, and facilitate studio and gallery visits to spark creativity and new ideas.
We don’t call it a studio for no reason! Each artist/creative will have dedicated time to immerse themselves in nature to explore and work on a personal creative project during the trip. Projects can be anything at all, from fashion designs, paintings, installations, a new music track or business plan – the world’s your oyster.
After completing a series of Outdoor Studio weekend trips in 2017, we will invite alumni to share and celebrate the creative projects they worked on at a showcase in early 2018.
