This effort wants to connect you to likeminded people - online and offline - with no membership fees, no product pitches, and a fresh look at networking. We're here to help you find your support group: the people you want to brainstorm with, who you call when you need a push in the right direction, who will give you an honest opinion when you need it most. Florida Creatives Happy Hours are for professionals, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, consultants and everyone else too - no matter what your creative pursuit is. This website and our other online presences reinforce the connections you make at events, and help our members discover and publish what's new.
Our groups are all over the state: we have long-running meetups in Orlando and Brevard County, and satellite efforts in Gainesville, Jacksonville, Lakeland, South Florida, Southwest Florida, Tallahassee, and the Tampa Area. If you are interested in seeing these networks grow, get on the discussion list and shout out to the other creatives in your area. We also have interest-based groups for specific industries, disciplines and free event, forum and wiki hosting for meetup groups.
The Wiki on the site is broken out into several areas to collect information - places to get wi-fi, great local resources, companies or artists in your area, and more. Anyone who registers can edit pages or add new ones. There are some pointers in the Help wiki. We are collecting awesome tutorials in the Guides wiki.
