Creative Expat Meet Up #5

Finally we meet again!

Short notice, I know, but next Thursday (October 30) at 17:00 we meet at Pustervik, right next to Järntorget. We meet downstairs at the bar for some mingle and after 19:00 those who want to can continue up in the restaurant.

RSVP to:

We believe that in order to feel at home and enjoy a city, you need close and fruitful relations. So we want to create an easy-going social platform for international creatives.

It is about meeting likeminded over a glass or a bite, listen to some good music and share views, ideas and needs. We plan to meet once every month or so. Most of the times at a central pub. It could also be in one of the creative agencies around.
Our main principle is that it should be for free. We are very open to let it be shaped and owned by those who come, and let it grow in any direction desired.


Meet new people over lunch is a new website for those who want to meet new people, friends, colleagues etc over lunch. There are already six people signed up who will sit at different lunch places around Gothenburg, same day and time every week/month. It is free for anyone to add to the list!
