The Collective 2019
SATURDAY, APRIL 20TH, 2019
A LAB ANNUAL POP-UP FREE EVENT AT LORING SOCIAL
The Collective is an event hosted by LAB that is comprised of curated local businesses and makers and is held at Loring Social on the first floor of LAB Headquarters. The Collective is beyond your typical pop-up – it’s a modern marketplace – an interactive experience to shop local.
In addition there will be a schedule of discussions led by local business owners sharing their passion, experiences, and artistry. Our goal with The Collective is for you to join us in our mission, which is to create, connect, and collaborate. We added new concepts to the mix this year and are excited to share the details…hope to see you there!

11am - Bringing the Sacred to Your Creative Process
Jerrod believes the greatest things you leave behind will be born out of creativity. Join this conversation and learn how when we approach our craft with a sacred mind, the gifts we produce are truly offerings of our talents and of ourselves.
12Pm - CBD: From Fear to fervor
Cannabis enters the mainstream. Why is it everywhere? Cannabidiol is being touted as a magical elixir, a cure-all now available in skin care, coffee, dog treats and even pharmaceuticals. Let’s talk about the rise of CBD and what that means to you.
1pm - SUSTAINABLE FASHION
Sustainability in fashion is not black or white. There are no singular, entirely sustainable options in consumerism. So how do we decide where to best spend our limited resources of money and time? Kathryn of Winsome Goods will talk through the pros and cons of existing sustainable options in clothing consumerism and help to set intentions for shopping based on our individual priorities.
2pm - Giving, Collaboration & Hard Work When Building A Creative Empire
A candid conversation about the difference that giving makes as part of your business plan, and the power of collaboration to reach audiences outside of your core group. In addition, learning that there are no short cuts and how to make hard work fun with goals & games.
