What we're about

Ironworks is a monthly meetup for self-employed creatives in the metro Phoenix area. We meet the second Tuesday of the month at 9am, at different locations throughout the valley.

As iron sharpens iron, Ironworks was created as a way to bring self-employed creatives together over breakfast to learn from and be inspired by one another. There's no speaker or agenda, just a casual meal with like-minded individuals.

Creatives of all kinds are welcome—designers, developers, marketers, photographers, illustrators, writers, videographers, artists, or makers of any kind. We're an open-minded bunch, so whether you're fully self-employed, moonlighting after hours, are interested in becoming self-employed, or just like hanging out with freelance creatives, we'd love for you to join us.
