We invite you out to join us as we provide space for a working community photo shoot - meet, greet, kick back and work with fellow creatives and members of the community. Our Community Open House is the kick off to our FriendsGiving Showcase season! This time of year allows us to support and highlight the creatives we’ve met throughout the year with collaborative gatherings of content creation, visual and performance art exhibitions and strong tribe feels. Come out for a relaxed yet productive day of community building and creative collaboration. And get to know this year's FriendsGiving Roster of featuerd artists and vendors. We'll have photo stations set up with featured potographers for you to be photographed (and shoot photos yourself) while you mingle with other like minded creatives and local contributors. Get to know other creatives a bit more while shooting content, participating in group activations and sharing ideas. We are ALL about collaborative community efforts. There will be snacks, music and GREAT artists, minds, and energies in the room. Come as you are and feel free to bring anything you’d like to add to the collective room or be photographed with. All other good vibes are welcome: music, conversation, creative displays, etc. Whatever might turn a house into a home! Registration a must. Please visit Make sure you stop by and say Hi!

    This MeetUp is an extension of the non-profit 501c3 organization.

    Self Love Affirmation Preservation

    Striving to impart and reinforce positive mindsets and communities, the SLAPcollective is a melding of groups, individuals, and initiatives that promote self love, affirmation, and preservation through artistic exploration and expressions. From workshops and group discussions to shared work spaces and artistic productions - spanning various mediums and practices - the Collective connects creatives and others with resources and unifying spaces. We build community through artistry and bring some color to self worth!

    Our collective mission is to promote self exploration and expressions through creative arts. We curate safe spaces and host creative gatherings that strengthen one's sense of self and belonging by connecting individuals with resources and experiences that leave them feeling expressive and fluid - building community through artistry. Our intent is to nurture a community of beings and spaces for the purpose of individual and collaborative growth and illumination by showcasing various developing artists, voices, mediums and practices.

    Within our unifying spaces and programming, we connect and mix Creatives with one another and audiences to display and further develop their artistic crafts; we aim to grow and cultivate a succinct community of artists and various resources that help grow and cultivate artists of all degrees. Ultimately, Creatives are empowered with a platform to explore and collaborate with others by hosting and/or participating in workshops, open discussions and showcases. On the other hand, the everyday individual, as an attendee and active participant, is encouraged to take part in and explore their own means of creative expression.
