The Joys of Meetup – Building Your Own Community

One of the hardest parts for me of being a self-employed creative is that you basically work in isolation.  It’s also very hard to build friendships among artists, all of whom are focused on their art and families, and who may be jealous or competitive.  So I was thrilled to find several artistic groups on Meetup that were near me and offered the kind of community I have so sorely missed.  It’s great to be able to talk to others in the same ‘language’ about art, compare projects, brainstorm, problem-solve, collaborate, etc.

How have you found your artistic community and what are you still looking for?
