Coffee + Creatives is an informal meetup group (every other week) for creatives in and around Albuquerque.
First time going? Here's how it works…
Maybe you're an artist, designer, filmmaker, writer, gallery owner, food truck / restaurant wizard, musician, or creative entrepreneur / business owner looking for feedback on a problem or idea — like where to find funding for a project, how to negotiate leasing a space, or what kind of prices you should charge charge for your work.
Whatever you're working on, or if you simply want to hear what other creatives are working on, this group is for you. We meet every two weeks, and focus on getting things done (save the networking for other spaces, please!)
Seek help but do your own work.
Have a bias towards action — bring a problem to solve or be ready to help someone else solve a problem or figure out how to test it.
Respect people’s time, space and ambition — provide information and perspective, instead of saying “you should do XYZ.”
When you don’t have enough info, say “I don’t know” and look for a way to get it.
Use the information that works for you, discard what doesn’t.
Be willing to give first without expecting anything in return.
