How is interior design an expression of creativity? How would a person discover their creative side through the design of living and working spaces? That’s the focus of the next ON BEING CREATIVE event, a public discussion to help people discover and explore their unique creative expression by interacting with other creators.
Sponsored by the Guelph Arts Council, Guelph writer and filmmaker, Peter Szabo, will have a conversation with Emily Loker, Principal Interior Designer at CAKE Interior Design. As with the last event featuring guest creator songwriter/novelist James Gordon, Szabo will explore Loker’s personal (and professional) method of creative expression and uncover how she and her team “design to inspire…and create meaningful experiences that reflect the needs of the people and their environment.”
Once again, attendees will have a chance to explore their own means of creative expression and find support and resources through informal discussion with other attendees.
The event will be videotaped by supporting partner Ed Video Media Arts Centre and shared for online public viewing. You can view the last event on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/AMYwuCHlx3g
Come get inspired and supported in discovering or developing your creative side.
WHEN: Sept. 27 – 7:00-9:00 pm
WHERE: artBar (above Miijidaa), 37 Quebec St., Guelph
GUEST CREATOR: Guelph based interior designer Emily Loker (CAKE Interior Design).
Emily Loker Bio
Emily Loker, principal, Interior Designer
Emily is an award-winning Registered Interior Designer with over 13 years of experience working on an extensive portfolio of projects. Her earliest memories that lead her to the world of interior design are rearranging the living room furniture almost daily while on summer holidays as a child, and as a teenager, building a scale model of a house using the extent of her high school’s woodshop while studying construction technology. She was hooked on the idea that she could (and still does) design and build many things from scratch.
Experience early in her career focused on high-end and multi-unit residential. Emily shifted paths to retail and restaurant design, providing concepts and roll-out packages for a variety of clients ranging from small kiosks to fashion and grocery retail, and quick service restaurants to fine dining for both Canadian and international markets. Since starting CAKE in 2017, she has an even split between commercial and residential clients across Southwestern Ontario and the U.S.
Emily is an active member of ARIDO and IDC, and is a LEED Accredited Professional with a specialty in Interior Design and Construction.
