Florida Creatives reaches a milestone in May - we turn the corner our first 6 months as a community. From the first Happy Hour at Dexter's with 8 passionate individuals to events nearing 50 strong, this group can only become greater in the next 6 months.
A huge inspiration for FL Creatives was the Fringe Festival - seeing a community so strong after 16 years of existence, and how they come together in a frenzy for one week every year. FL Creatives will have a table and tent set up in Loch Haven Park by the Fringe Beer Tent all week, but Third Monday happens during the Fringe Festival, so we are having a special outdoor Happy Hour this month. Beer is made by our own Orlando Brewing Co.
Coordinator Ryan Price is also putting together a podcast with members of Florida Creatives. Bring a stack of business cards and your listening ears.
The eventual goal of this group is to hold a state-wide annual unConference where the community gets together to learn from each other, though the Happy Hour is not a recruitment event for people to work on the conference. This event exists simply for us to get together and be social.
