IKEA Hacker Symposium January, 2017 - EXCITING!

watch the video here!

Chapter 1 - I've got 2 hours to change the world - that's the other title. 

I'm ready for it. On January 22, 2017 join me for a first ever IKEA Hacking Symposium. It's going to be exciting!

Here is the link to the official listing! I am part of the ToDo 2017 Design Festival! 

Who should come? 

Anyone who shops at IKEA, and likes it there.*

You will never look at IKEA the same way. I guarantee it. 

Those who will read the listing off the official site,  will recognize it to be a little sensationalist - but hey! I'm marketing myself on small screens. You got to be smart about these things! If you haven't captured their imagination right there and there, you lost them. 

It's gonna be smart and it's gonna be funny! I will show you what is possible - I will bring examples! I will open your eyes to the world of IKEA. Together we will re-live one of the greatest moments in furniture design history. Yea! For real. 
'I was blind, and now I see'. 

There is going to be a give away - that's right if you RSVP and are in the audience when your name is called than you win a cool IKEA Hack. It's a more luxurious version of the my own personal one, the first one I ever made, before I knew I was going to be an IKEA Hacker  - aren't you curious what piece of furniture you can win? 

It's gonna be performance design - like a performance art, but better! 

The venue is awesome - the Assembly Hall, North Room - in the best part of the city of Toronto, the New Toronto, right by the lake, right off Lakeshore. It is fully accessible, AND the Hipster 501 TTC Red Rocket - the 501 Queen Street streetcar - will deliver you almost to the door - how convenient is that? You have no excuses not to attend. RSVP as soon as you read this - the venue is legally rated for 65, but I can't have that many chairs set-up because I will be showing some things in the back. 

We will have Starbucks coffee and some Costco muffins - you know why? Cause Starbucks coffee is good and Costco muffins are an awesome deal! 

What else? Yea, read the listing - click the link above - it gives you some idea of what to expect. 

And if you got some extra time on your hands, or are curious about what other things I do - like my fiction or illustrations than you can click the other link there -

Ciao! and see you in January! 

*After the talk is finished and you had your chance to ask a question you will likely be hungry - you know what's a good place to eat that's not too far away? IKEA Etobicoke - just 9 min north of there by car, or you can take UBER. They are constantly changing up the menu - cheap and good food. 

** afterthoughts:

A] I am mentally running through all the materials that I have gathered on IKEA. My own thoughts and writing - it's my little obsessive behaviour. I have been puzzled as to why I focus so much on IKEA. Well, the first thing is that I like IKEA - it would be hard to study something that you do not enjoy. Second [to be continued...]
