Creative Collective Forum -SOLD OUT-

  • Feb 19, 2014 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Creative Collective Asheville is an emerging group that helps make Asheville a place where professional creatives and freelancers don’t just reside, but thrive. We are organizing an “Open Forum” to introduce ourselves and reach out to other professional creatives in the community. Come prepared to have fun, learn, and see how we can help each other.

Due to the overwhelming response for our first event we need some help with refreshments. If anyone could bring snack or beverage to share that would be GREATLY appreciated! 

Since we are dealing with a large group of people and have facilitated processes planned please do your best to arrive a little early so we can start and finish on time. I changed the start time to 6:45 to allow time for check in so we can get started promptly at 7. Looking forward to an awesome event!

    Hi Everyone!

    Katie here (duh). I'm super excited for our next meet-up at the Mothlight in March!! A few of you came up and said some really kind words about my facilitation and/or presentation skills. I am in the midst of designing my new business's website and would be thrilled if you could send me a sentence or two for testimonials. My email is [masked]

    Love & Awesomeness,
    Katie

    Really great start! I was surprised at the organized format (thanks Katie) and learned about some new resources - I enjoyed the brainstorming. Happy to be connecting with so many creatives to build this new way of being a successful artist in Asheville. Thank you all. So much more fun when you can see multiple perspectives from people with the same types of needs and goals.

    We appreciate everyone's enthusiasm, but please refrain from posting requests for non-paid work within this group. It is in conflict with our core values, and perpetuates the very problems which we are trying to solve.

    I am really thankful to the organizers to bringing this vision to reality. A huge value to pulling together all of these people is to see who is in the room and to build community and a shared collective vision. In my mind, this needs to be done prior to jumping into solving any problems. The event was great and much appreciated but too structured. The facilitation instructions were confusing. No one could hear the bell - a flashing of the overhead lights would have been more effective. In order to retain people , especially creative types, a lot of listening needs to happen. Why people were drawn to coming, what's on their minds, etc. This doesn't necessarily mean listing out the problems with Asheville from the get-go, or allowing for complaining. Why was everyone willing to carve out this time? Perhaps that's a good question to lead with.

      Hi Michael, Thanks for your feedback. Great suggestions on the lights and such. In the future, you're welcome to make suggestions like that during the process. I agree the instructions didn't get across the way I planned - lol perils of trying out a new process - I've made some modifications to the process for the next time I run it. Please feel free to reach out personally if you would care to learn more about my thinking in the designing of this process. Welcome to Asheville!
