Recharging by Collaborating

At Light On, Longmont small businesses and freelancers are recharging by collaborating for creativity and productivity.

    1. One who displays productive originality.

Running your own business is challenging. And when you're in a creative business where you not only have to be productive but also original and imaginative, well, it can be downright frustrating at times.

Light On - Creatives for Community is a Meetup for Longmont creative professionals and artists who need an opportunity to recharge their creativity and to move beyond the frustration of day-to-day business through networking, sharing ideas and collaborating on creative projects for both the community and their businesses.

Here's what some of the members have to say about Light On:

“I love having a group where I am surrounded by creatives and encouraged to explore my creative side, bringing it to the community.”
    -Kim Taylor, Family Fan Club

“This group is so supportive of the arts community and its members. So proud to be a part of it!”
    -Lisa Patchem, Lisa Patchem Photography

“I see Light On as an opportunity to share in the creative process with other like-minded individuals, which is not something that I often get to do in my day-to-day life. I view it as an opportunity to learn from and be motivated by people who value and regularly exercise their creativity. The idea that some of the group's efforts benefit the larger community adds to the appeal.”
    -Alicia Beeson, XSEED Design & Production

Light On – Creatives for Community is about building your network, learning practical tools from industry professionals and having fun with creativity in order to recharge your “productive originality.”

Check out some of our recent recharging activities in the photos and plan to join us at our next Meetup, 7 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 1 at Launch Longmont (in the old Longmont Times-Call building).
