A lot goes on at Primer.

The monthly event fuses cocktail party, concert and art viewing — plus a segment for projects and businesses in the spirit of Technori pitch events — to promote artists’ development in Chicago.

It’s a product of Canvas, a Wicker Park-based event company and community of event producers, entrepreneurs and artists.

The event is one of several the 2-year-old initiative has in place to enable artists to collaborate and share resources.

“We thought, ‘Let’s bring a little more structure that seems to be around the Technori style, as well as an element of what’s at art and creative events,’” said Preston Jones, co-founder and director of operations at Canvas.

The event bridges the gap between enterprise and creativity, Jones said. He said about 70 percent of attendees are creative types, the rest entrepreneurs.

The fifth and most recent event last week included, among other things:

• short pitches from a company that does events for creative types combining art, music, yoga, drinks and a charitable component;

• an arts and beer activity seeking brewery and artist participation;

• the developer of a live-show ticket-purchasing app in need of bands for testing;

• and a community arts center bringing awareness to its Indiegogo campaign;

Canvas runs an accelerator for creative endeavors including audio, visual and literary projects. It produces experiential events and art installations for brands and gatherings, and it organizes a regular collaborative that pairs visual and musical artists for an evening’s entertainment.

Artists Vincent Naples, who goes by DrmBt, and Lefty carry out many of the initiatives.

“We want to shift the way people think about how you buy and experience art,” said Jones, who started Canvas in 2013 with Naples. “Traditionally, bands tour with other bands. Why can’t a visual artist go on tour with a musician?”

Last week’s Primer included folks who sported topknots and dreadlocks and carried a skateboard or two. Attendees interacted in the Canvas courtyard with drinks amid displays from a featured visual artist and performances by a local musician and DJs. Along the way, they heard short pitches from those touting programs.

“It’s about putting a roomful of people together, inspiring them and allowing them to connect,” Jones said. “So many networking events, they have a stuffiness about them. We try to ease that into the environment, and organically people will just happen to meet each other because that’s what’s in the air.”

Pugs Atomz, creative director and designer at Chicago-based Iridium clothing company, said he appreciated the opportunity to get in front of creators and ask them for proposals on collaborations. He said he made contact with a couple of DJs whom he booked to play at the store.

“It’s a really good place to say what we need, as opposed to other events where people are offering what they have,” Atomz said.900x506
