Who Said You Can't Balance Work and Play at Creative Works Conference
Calling all creatives! There's a whole conference right here in Memphis dedicated to honing in on your skills while meeting top leaders in their respective fields.
Unforgettable presentations, hands-on workshops, pop-up markets and after-parties are what you can look forward to from September 28-30, 2023.
Memphis' own, Josh Horton, founded Creative Works and wanted to promote creative spaces in the city. The Creative Works conference is September 28-30, 2023 all over Downtown Memphis.
All presentations happen at the iconic New Daisy Theater. Workshops will be right around the corner at Epicenter. The pop-up market will be at Ghost River Brewing Co. Taproom.
Attendees flock from all over the world, but we want to get more locals take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
This is the place to be for any and all creatives. You'll be surrounded by diverse like-minded individuals who are just as passionate about their work as you are. We're so excited to see Memphian Mia Saine as one of the many speakers. Mia is an amazing illustrator and designer! You may have seen their holiday collection in Target.
The list of presenters is impressive with people who are the top of their crafts. Learn from top creatives of Disney TV Animation, Vinyl Me Please, COLLINS, and more. From illustration to filmmaking and writing -- this conference covers it all.
In addition to the conference presentations, there are additional hands-on workshops you can sign up for. Here are a couple ones to look forward to:
