Dispelling the notion that industry events have to be dull, Klick created a tour of immersive and inspiring special events in cities across North America last year. Curated by Klick CEO, Leerom Segal, the Klick MUSE series of events included Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and ended the year with Klick’s hometown, Toronto.


 

It arrived at the Carlu for the first-ever Klick MUSE Toronto on Dec 8th, 2015 bringing together people from creative, arts, health, science and technology. The multi-sensory event filled the venue with attractions all evening including incredible inspiring speakers such as Canada’s celebrated author, Margaret Atwood, and influential Canadian director, David Cronenberg. James and I got to experience first hand the card magic of mentalist Bobby Motta.

The tone was set for the evening starting with inspiring, positive words from 2013 Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet. She lost her lower left leg in the tragic events but that doesn’t stop her from pursuing her passion to dance as a professional ballroom dancer.
