Creative Community Events

From inspiring talks to deep-dive workshops to monthly meetups, Creative Works hosts regular events all year long. Everything we do is designed to keep you engaged and growing while getting connected with new ideas and new people. Beginner or seasoned pro, you'll find something to help you build your creative career, or simply lead a more creative life.

Design Bootcamp

Our 12-week intensive Design Bootcamp takes students through a project-based curriculum to learn the fundamentals of design, creativity, and communication. As you learn the building blocks of creative problem solving, you will define, create, and launch a real campaign to solve a real problem you see in your community.

Youth Education

The next generation of creatives are already here — they just don't know it yet. Thats why it's vital to equip underserved students with foundational design skills that empower them to be stronger problem solvers and introduce them to creative career pathways. We currently teach a design elective course for 7th and 8th graders at Grizzlies Prep, and lead the Mobile App Design summer camp at Memphis College of Art. In these classes, students learn the fundamentals of design and apply their learning to various real-world projects.
