CREATOR'S WORKDAY | Your brainchild needs a playdate.
Get a jumpstart on your professional to-do list. Join other artists and creatives at Creators Workday on Friday and Saturday October 24th and 25th at Houston Station, in the eclectic Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood.
Creator's Workday is an unconference for independent creators. It's different from other professional development events because its focused on guided practice and coworking; not just lectures and case studies. You'll get great information (the industry is always changing) AND an opportunity to apply it. Which means you'll leave with new strategies, and a few things knocked off the to-do list.
We won't just talk about what you "should" do, or even what others have done. We'll actually do it. Right there.
Creator's Workday will take place on Friday night October 24th and Saturday October 25th and is focused on creative endeavors: startups, authors, musicians, artists and brands.
Let's get some real work done on your business & career. We're here to help you by giving great information and a space to work, so you can get on with your project, business and brand. Grab your laptop and head to downtown Nashville for a day; meet great people who are also building "a guy-and-a-laptop" businesses, and get real answers to your questions.
WHAT IS CREATOR'S WORKDAY?
The weekend will start with some refreshments, a structured meet and greet, and a round-table discussion with the coaches. Beginning at 1pm on Saturday each coach will offer an hour of guided practice, and will also hold "office hours" so you can get detailed answers to your specific questions one-on-one. There will be coworking time so you can get work done, and you'll walk out with some new connections, some useful information, and a headstart on your to-do list.
