  • Hey @embracecreatives; Are we going to have any sort of Feed Back Forum soon? You know the one we had at the Pioneer Building in November? I would like to talk about my collages – I have 3 done. I think photos are great but in person feedback would be amazing…..

  • Welcome to Lauren Nelson – Member #450 @laurennelson – Please add her as a connection. Lauren, so happy you have joined our ever growing group of creative individuals and businesses. Please tell us about you and your work. How did you find EC and what type of networking opportunities are you looking for?

    • Thank You so much for the warm welcome Karen and everyone else! My work focuses on photography, videography and graphic design art. I started as an artist 12 years ago, but realized that there’s also much to learn on the administrative and business aspect of the art culture. Since I’m graduating from MSU this May, I decided to find opportunities…[Read more]

      • Hello Lauren! We’re excited to have you here, especially as a soon-to-be-graduate (Go Green – Go White!) because we know how difficult it can be for people entering the workforce/larger art community to network and find supporters. EC is a place that students need to know about so thank you for mentioning us in your Art & Culture Management c…[Read more]

  • Thank you Andrea. Over the past few years, I have hoped for and thought about a project like EMBRACE CREATIVES. Needless to say, I was very interested when I stumbled upon a posting on Craigslist. I stepped away from selling sculpture and design work for about 5 years. When I resurfaced a few years back, the entire business had changed. What once…[Read more]

  • @karenzuk
    Thank you very much. I am interested in networking with all types of artists and businesses. I hope I am doing this communication correctly, I am new to all this and have been trying to learn how to respond and connect. I appreciate the support and apologize if I am slow to respond or connect as this is a lot for a low tech guy to get…[Read more]

    • Hi Brant! Looks like you’re doing everything right and don’t worry about “quick” or “precise” – This is a safe space for Artists to do business and a lot of us here aren’t super skilled in technology. Because EC is headquartered in Metro Detroit, I know a lot of our Members and they are kind and good people who are supportive and grateful for…[Read more]

    • Hey Brant! I got your message so looks like your communication is working great. Can’t wait to see more work, because what I have seen so far is so interesting. Like Andrea said, what for the next Mix with a Maker and hang out with some cool peeps.

    • Hi Brant – Happy to have you in our growing, professional art community!

      • Thank you offering this service. I am so unfamiliar with all this communication technology. I am spending some time trying to understand how to use your site and all of its options.

        • Go to our User Manual for better instruction but EC is pretty easy to use. We’re still new (less than a year old) always listening to our Members to find our what they are looking for in a business network.
