When creative people come together, amazing things happen.
Each person’s exploration of creativity manifests in different ways. To catch the creative bug can be transformative and impactful, yet there is no one-size-fits-all creative outlet. It is essential to build relationships with other visionaries to expand and empower one’s journey in the field.
Join Eugenie Jolivett Fontana, founder of Gather & Garner and We Are Here, as she delves into the value of a supportive creative community. Eugenie has made it her life’s work to encourage individuals to collaborate with one another, regardless of discipline or background, in order to unleash their potential and being to reimagine and change the structural face of the creative community.
