Outdoor Studio started as a project that was pitched at the Think Outside Summit, hosted by MEC Outdoor Nation, with the aim of getting more people outside. Thanks to MEC Outdoor Nation’s generous support, we were able to bring it to life – this is our story:

We all met at the conference and were brought together by our passion for the outdoors, from a creative perspective.

Working in the creative industry, we understood that a lot of creative work is done indoors, like designing on a computer or painting in a studio. It’s rare to see creative types taking their thinking or practicing their craft outdoors.

That’s why we wanted to shake it up – having experienced the incredible impact that being outdoors has on creativity, we wanted to share the idea of taking creative thinking into the great Canadian outdoors.

Thanks to MEC Outdoor Nation’s generous support, we’re doing this through our Outdoor Studio trips!
