NEPA Creative was co-founded by Coal Creative CEO, Holly K. Pilcavage, & Creative Director, Samuel O’Connell. The idea initially sprouted back in 2017 a few short weeks after Holly moved back to the area and started working at Coal Creative. The team launched the NEPA Creative video series which highlighted one creative every week of the year (Yes! That is 52 Creatives!) via their social media platforms, shining the light on the creative humans that make our communities an even better place to live, work, and play.
Fast forward to early 2019 and you’ll find Holly & Sam laying out the plans for a potential meetup to ask some people to come together to discuss ideas and the need we might have in NEPA. To their surprise, over 70 people answered their call and showed up at the THINK Center on March 26, 2019.
