Meet 19 Cool Creatives

Meet 19 Cool (and Highly Caffeinated) Creatives

To close out 2023, Charlotte Is Creative organized a last-minute gathering of Coffee With Creatives, our monthly meet-up with a small group of randomly selected creatives. And, it was a blast.

The talent in the room ran the gammut — from visual art to photography, journaling, art curation, cartooning and filmmaking. We caught up with old friends and made tons of new ones. And, we recommend you follow them all. 

We assemble a new group of creatives and buy them a cup of coffee every month. If you want a chance to be at our Jan. 20 meet-up at 11 a.m., here’s how it works.

  1. We will post on Instagram about the event on Jan. 15
  2. If you can make the event, you put your name in the comments
  3. On Jan. 18, we’ll put all the names in a random list generator
  4. If you are one of the 20 artists selected by the generator, we’ll DM about where to meet us

Now, get to know the amazing folks from the last event. And, think about hiring them. They’re each amazing.
