Welcome to the European Visual Practitioners Community
The EVP Purpose
EVP Friday Cocktails
On the first Friday of every month EVP hosts “Friday Cocktails,” a regular, relaxed hang-out to connect, co-learn and co-create with other practitioners. It’s Friday afternoon, time to relax, draw and have a laugh!
The next EVP Cocktail is on Friday 7th May at 4pm CET
This is the regular European Visual Practitioners hang-out, it’s a relaxed hour on Friday to connect with other people in the community. In May, we’re going to run a spotlight session, where community members interview and draw each other. It’s a great way to get to know people, and the illustrations may be shared (if you like) on social media afterward.
