Last night I organized the season’s first session of the Working Creatives group – established last year. There are ~115 members with a different mix coming to meetings every session.
The group’s raison d’etre is to provide an informal and inexpensive forum for people working in a creative field (as their principle occupation) to learn, meet and network. We have had presentations from or about Apple, Corel, suppliers, archiving digital work, etc.
The group has graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, writers, film/video talents that work independently, or for government or other employers. Veterans and those emerging into their fields attend. There is a lot of cross discipline information and networking – it’s win/win.
If you are working full time in your creative discipline or emerging into your field in a serious way and would like more information please let me know.
