Charlotte Is Creative develops programs and initiatives

Designed to break the Charlotte mold and re-make it with creativity.

We connect and celebrate Charlotte's creative citizens. We empower and support them through our HUG (Helpful Unfettered Gift) micro-grant program and related training. We inform and entertain our city through our official media channel, The Biscuit.

You bring the destination. We’ll bring our crew of wildly inventive people to build an unexpected and inviting vehicle that gets you there while making the journey vibrant and memorable.

Everything we do is in service of fortifying creativity in Charlotte, championing the diverse people making it happen, and strengthening the mutually-enriching relationship between Charlotte’s creative and business communities.
