Birmingham’s creative economy is only as strong as the spirit of community that supports its development. Find physical and virtual networks to meet, communicate and collaborate. Seek out new experiences to expand your horizons. Make friends. Make places. Be inspired.

HUB Talks:

Create Birmingham hosts informal networking forums to bring together constituents from different sectors to brainstorm, debate, and address specific creative industry needs and priorities, while laying the groundwork for future projects and initiatives. The focus and location change for each HUB Talk, and suggestions are always welcome!

We don’t mean to brag, but it’s a fact that is the most comprehensive calendar of public events our city has to offer. Arts & culture of every variety, family-friendly fun, happy hour meet-ups, sporting and outdoor events, food-and-beverage activities? We’ve got it all. Whatever you’re interested in, we are too.

Classes & Workshops:

Numerous organizations in the Birmingham area offer professional development and/or continuing education opportunities for adults in creative industry fields. This list, which is a work-in-progress with more details to be added this fall, represents a mere fraction of those offerings.
