Why is this important?
“Engaging with people from different backgrounds and unique perspectives is vital to innovation. The Creative Meetups give us an opportunity to learn, grow, and improve as a community. Having an inclusive space and a consistent forum to gather is such an important resource for NEPA.”
“I think that as a creative mind, it is very easy to become uninspired. Having the Creative Meetups be a place where creative minds can come and be surrounded by a room of their peers to spark inspiration is so powerful, so beautiful, and infinitely important.”
“Creative Meetups like these inspire new and exciting projects. Connecting creatives of different media and outlets allows for them to potentially bring larger, more diverse projects to life.”
