The Creative Works Conference Is Coming to Downtown Memphis

Calling all Creatives!

The 8th annual Creative Works Conference is set for October 6-8 at the Halloran Centre in downtown Memphis.

This event brings a plethora of creatives, storytellers, artists, illustrators, photographers, hand-letterers, creative entrepreneurs, and more to Memphis for a weekend of collaboration, learning, and celebration. 

The Creative Works Conference’s goal is to sharpen the skillset of passionate creatives who truly care about their craft and connect them with like-minded individuals. 

"This year’s conference is stacked with some of the smartest and most creative minds in our industry. I can’t wait for what is sure to be a weekend to remember."
Josh Horton
Founder of Creative Works

The conference is filled with presentations by experienced professionals, 10-skilled workshops, a 36-vendor curated maker market, and three eventful after parties.

The speakers include some of the most inspiring creatives from all around the world. They will speak about the trials, successes, processes, and more they’ve faced on their journeys. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with people and fine-tune your craft.

Ten hands-on sessions led by masters of their craft will give you a deep dive into creative skills like branding, illustration, hand-lettering, product photography, storytelling, and more. Workshops are open only to conference attendees and have limited seating.

The Creative Works Market showcases curated apparel, prints, pins, and handmade goods from over 30 designers, makers, and brands from all over the country. With plenty of local vendors in the mix, you’ve got more swag than you can stuff in your tote bag. The market is open to the public Fri. 10/7, and Sat. 10/8, from 10a-6p.

It's not too late to convince your boss or buy your ticket!

Give them this pitch we’ve stolen straight from the team at Creative Works.
