In a city so full of networking and small talk, The Oui Collective is a space for womxn to
cultivate authentic connections and learn something new while empowering one another and the community.
The Oui Collective hosts intimate invite-only monthly events curated by television personality and fashion expert, Melissa Chataigne.
We’re connecting beautiful humans and curating authentic, engaging experiences that will forever stick to the participating parties’ collective soul.
We’re painting, spinning, throwing clay, cooking, crafting, hiking, volunteering and elevating our community. We curate to variety of industries, backgrounds, and perspectives! Because when you say, "OUI" magic happens!
Join the community!
Connect and create on the potter’s wheel! You’ll have the opportunity to create one piece on at Throw Clay. You’ll then select glaze colors and well be ready in 2-3 weeks. Nourishment (pizza & wine) provided by Pizza Sociale! 15% of your ticket will go toward the Carole Chataigne Memorial Fund.
It’s simple! Follow the link and apply for the event you would like to attend. We curate each month with a variety of industries, backgrounds, and perspectives and work with cultivating the right fit. You will receive confirmation in 24 hours or a full refund. We love connecting women and would love to have you attend!
Each event is 1.5-2.5 hours, though sometimes we linger. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by your hosts and refreshments. The first 30 minutes or so will be social time for you to meet the other guests and to just mingle. Event event has a theme and you will be asked an intentional question for each guest to answer. This experience requires both engagement and active listening, and often involves plenty of laughter and facilitates connection.
Each event is limited 8-12 people. We like to keep it small so each guest feels truly connected.
Each event is $20-$100 and includes food, drink and supplies. Some events will be free as well.
Because of the nature of the events and the desire for intimacy and connection, we are very intentional about the space we are creating. No detail is overlooked, including our guest list. We curate each event to make sure that you’re meeting new people; a variety of professions and perspectives are always represented.
We are not here to network, we are here to be present, to learn something new about ourselves, and to truly practice what it looks like to connect to others. Beautiful friendships, partnerships and magic have come out of OUI, but the goal is authenticity.
The goals of Oui is connection. I do want to cover my overhead, but my main goal is to grow the scholarship fund in my mother's name.
