One of our Florida Creatives kids (and the first subject of the Florida Creatives Podcast waay back in the day), and a fantastically awesome person by the name of Mark Baratelli, AKA the guy from The Daily City, got a half-page feature in the Orlando Weekly's LIVE ACTIVE CULTURES by Seth Kubersky.

This morning, Mark held a wonderful conversation called MOOM - don't ask me what it means, but you should have been there. Watch twitter and his blog for more announcements to get independent producers together.

If you've been out at cultural events in Orlando in 2009, there's a good chance you'll see a man looking down at his sketchbook with his watercolors out. He's Thomas Thorspecken, and he's drawing and painting the scene around him. Check his blog in a few days and see the results.

In 2008, Chris Jones put together a charity project which collects unused computers, installs free software, and trains a needy family or organization in the care and use. Caring Compy will soon have non-profit status, and we couldn't be more proud of our Florida Creatives membership.

Happy Hour and Orlando Fringe

Location

Orlando Fringe (Loch Haven Park)
900 E Princeton St Green Lawn of Fabulousness
Orlando, FL 32803
May 18 2009 6:00p - 9:00p

This Monday, Florida Creatives Happy Hour will be taking over the Green Lawn of Fabulousness at the 2009 Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival. The Fringe has a Beer Tent every year, and this will now be the third year in a row that I have goaded the Florida Creatives into basking in the glow - both from the lights on the lawn, and the faces of theatre patrons coming in and out of shows.
