This is been a predicament for many years. With the exception of the random industry parties, our creator/ influencer/ freelancer world is made up of loners, and most us like it that way. But it would also be nice to have a regular way to keep up with fellow industry people, meet new ones, connect, create and grow together as a community.

Resource Magazine decided to create that platform, a “home base” for us loners. A new event series called Creative DIVE is kicking off this Thursday September 27th, 2018. This will be the first of monthly networking events taking place in NY, SF, LA, and MIAMI.

We wanted to keep it casual and comfortable so we’ll be holding each monthly event at a different dive bar locally. The bars will offer drink specials and we get to drink on the cheap while meeting new faces!

Each city has a unique host:

New York- Alexandra Niki, CEO, Resource Magazine

San Francisco- Frederick Van Johnson, Host and Founder of TWiP (This Week in Photo Podcast)

Los Angeles- Bob Dortch, Co-Founder, Dumbo Media Co.

Miami- Chloe Chin, Fashion Stylist

We also have many great partners working with us on these events including The Phoblographer, The Prop Stylist, Dumbo Media Co, TWiP and more!

Phoblographer will be providing PIZZA at the first event. Thanks Chris!

Here are the details of the first event (we hope you can join us):
