Florida Creatives

Welcome to our Circle

Everyone who makes things needs other people - for ideas, motivation, or as patrons to support his or her creative endeavors. This website aims to act as the online means of organizing real-life meetup groups that help our members locate and collaborate with a support network. Florida Creatives Happy Hours are for professionals, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, consultants and everyone else too - no matter what your creative pursuit is. Our wiki holds links to local resources across the state, and our 9 regional groups on Facebook and LinkedIn are a great way to connect with likeminded people who live in your backyard.

FLCreatives Happy Hour #71 at the Courtesy

The Courtesy
114 N Orange
Orlando, FL 32801
Phone: (407) 704-9288
Community or Meetup: 
Oct 22 2012 6:00p - 9:00p

The Courtesy is a new establishment in an old buidling riding the "mixology" wave - they make some interesting cocktails and serve up craft beer and wine too. They are in the Dolive buidling - that place that was boarded up for the past few years - don't let that scare you off, I've been told it's a really great new place.

If you have been to our past happy hours at Gringos Locos it is diagonally across the corner from them, at the Northwest intersection of Washington and Orange Ave.

I'm sure we'll get hungry, and Gringos would be a great place to finish, so don't worry if you're not into cocktails. I also read the Courtesy makes their own sodas!

Come and join some of the passionate creative minds of Orlando in one of the longest-running happy hour meetups in the state of Florida (almost 6 years!). Our goal is to provide a safe environment to share your schemes, unearth passions and meet mentors or co-founders. We always get a pretty diverse representation - lately we have graphic designeers, lawyers, illustrators, city planners, startup founders, tech folks and a plethora of others.

This is by far one of the best ways to "get involved" in the community. The people at our Happy Hours are plugged in to what is going on and who is doing it.

Make sure to check out for even more cool stuff going on around the state.

OneSpark Crowdfunding

One Spark


Jacksonville, FL
Oct 04 2012 2:00p

One Spark is the world's first crowdfunding festival where you can come and support inspiration in person and in real-time. 

The fastest way for people to launch ideas is to have all of the resources they need in one place and at one time. One Spark is an event that brings those people (artists, technologists, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and the public) together for 5 days. During One Spark 2013 each of these folks will share their prototypes, experiments and projects in a really cool way by using downtown Jacksonville as a platform. Any place can be a venue (parking lots, businesses, restaurants, parks, etc.) and anyone can enter as a creator.

After the Factory - Global Peace Film Festival


Cobb Plaza Cinema Cafe Orlando, FL
Sep 20 2012 6:00p - 7:00p


In our troubled times of unemployment and corporate outsourcing we have seen the devastating effects in industrial towns all over the world. The documentary “After the Factory,” is based in Detroit, Michigan and Lodz, Poland, and gives insight to their different yet very similar backgrounds. 

“After the Factory,” goes beyond the usual representation of homelessness, poverty, and crime in these “fallen cities.” Its point of focus is the recovery of these two cities and how their communities are tackling these problems and making a difference. 

Founding Date: 
Meeting Time: 
3rd Mondays, 6-9PM @ Crooked Bayou, Downtown Orlando
