Welcome to our Circle

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.

If you want to be here, you belong. The first step is to register or login and join some groups. You'll get email updates about new posts and comments in all your groups.

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.

Coworking Anywhere - while there are awesome coworking spaces in downtown Orlando, sometimes you want to do your coworking near public transit and awesome places to get coffee, eat, hang out, see some art, go shopping and just get outside to enjoy the spring time. Did you know that there is a global community of people dedicated to the values of Collaboration, Openness, Community, Accessibility, and Sustainability in their workplaces? It's called Coworking, and people seem to think it's swell.

If you have the freedom to choose where and how you work or want to support the needs of people who do, you may want to consider joining us in the park on March 17th.
