Creative Crowd | Monthly Meet-Ups


Gather with other creative and cultural professionals and the EAC team for an evening of networking! These monthly meet-ups are designed to provide a friendly and casual space to foster stronger personal and professional connections within the creative and cultural sector. The recurring program will take place the second Tuesday of every month from 5:30 - 7:30. Host sites will rotate from month to month to allow for new experiences and connections.


  • Free and open to creative and cultural professionals.
  • No seminars or any specific programming - just show up with a desire to connect!
  • The goal is to create stronger connections and bonds, especially between disciplines and roles, to improve the breadth and strength of our sector.
  • Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages provided.

Thank you to our sponsorship, Erie County Build a Better Future Grant, for supporting the Creative Crowd!!

All events are subject to potential cancellation due to COVID concerns.
After registering for an event, you'll receive an email from Eventbrite if the meet-up is cancelled for that month.
