Paris, Ontario

The world is a small town, and creativity is everywhere.

Paris Lectures is a meetup series by designers Cassie McDaniel and Mark Staplehurst, makers of Jane & Jury, for folks to get together and celebrate creativity in Paris, Ontario.

Past Speakers

For each meetup, we invite a guest speaker with local ties to share their stories with us – What inspires them? What challenges have they faced? What are their aspirations?
