Imagine you’ve been given the chance to sit down and have a conversation over coffee with a key leader, innovator or change-maker in Philadelphia.
Who would you pick?
Narrow your answer down to a six-second video or 140 character Tweet, and you might just have the chance at that coffee meeting.
Replica’s Creative Cafe has launched the #DreamCup Campaign to do just that. Each month from January to June, individuals can nominate which local leader they want to meet for coffee and why it is important to them by using the hashtag #DreamCup on Vine or Twitter.
“The thought was me personally thinking who would I want to have my dream cup of coffee with?” said Keith Leaphart, owner of the Creative Cafe. “With that in mind, we came up with concept of this #DreamCup campaign as an opportunity to connect people in our city.”
Submissions for nominees will be accepted for the first three weeks of each month. To enter just send your Tweet and/or Vine video to @designprintcafe using #dreamcup.
The Creative Café will contact the nominee and the winner to schedule the meet-up. Leaphart said leaders who accept their nominations are expected to arrange to have coffee with the winner within roughly the next month.
The winner and the nominee will be announced via the Creative Cafe’s Twitter and Facebook page on the last weekday of each month. Winners will also receive a photo with the leader and a $25 gift card to the cafe.
The Creative Cafe at Replica is located at 3711 Market Street on the first floor of the University City Science Center. It is the first creative hub to combine graphic design and a coffee shop.-30-
