Along the Away

travel, dream, create, inspire, appreciate

So, I started my very own Meetup group! I’ve had this idea (or maybe yearning, can I say yearning?) for awhile now. I’m a creative person working in a creative capacity within a very uncreative industry. I’m currently the Marketing Manager at a large public transport company, overseeing both strategic and creative marketing functions including communications, brand identity, art direction and promotion. I was also the in-house graphic designer in this organisation for four years prior to this role.

I love my job but could definitely do with more creative collaboration; my work environment leans more towards a conservative, operations focused mentality.

I really want to connect with other creatives and I thought, if I feel this way surely others working creatively within non-creative work environments do too?

So my Meetup group was born – Sydney In-house Creatives.

The aim is to bring together in-house-creatives who enjoy working from the inside but also crave a connection with other creatives to share experiences, bounce ideas and have a mutual understanding of the shared frustrations. It’s an opportunity to meet cool people doing cool things in uncool industries :-)

I personally would love to learn how others navigate the in-house environment, hear about successful in-house strategies, as well as make new friends.

The group is for marketeers, designers, writers, developers, employee engagement or CSR co-ordinators and similar.

If you work in a creative capacity within a more conservative or corporate environment in Sydney then join my group for a monthly drinks-mingle and dose of engaging conversation and inspiration.

Please share the link – http://www.meetup.com/Sydney-Inhouse-Creatives – if you know someone who would be interested. I imagine it will be slow growing as I’m not sure how on earth I will reach these people… Wish me luck!
