Come as Friends
Leave as Family

Creative South is a weekend of creative thinking, collaboration, and exploration. Attendees enjoy workshops, talks focused on process and experience, and meeting old friends as well as making new ones. Our goal is to connect you to folks in the industry and the design community. It's also a whole lot of fun! If you have come before we can't wait to see you again. If not, check out the link below.

So as we say at Creative South, “Come as friends and leave as family.” #hugnecks

CARNIVAL OF WONDER
We are changing things up this year to kick-off Creative South 2018, the Year of Wonder. This year, we are opening the show with an all-new one-time event, The Carnival of Wonder. We don't want to spoil the fun so show up and be ready for an all new wonder-filled experience. And don't worry, the famous Bridge Party will just be the very next night...

BRIDGE PARTY
Fireworks, food, friends, fun and drinks...oh my! This year's Kickoff Mixer on Friday, April 13th is slated to be the best one yet. As mentioned above the usual suspects will be there and a fun new surprise! Want to know what it is? Then make sure to show up! Bridge entrances opens at 7pm. Please bring your ID (21+ to drink) and Creative South registration information. Event is open to Creative South attendees only.

INK WARS
Eight artists are given 60 minutes, Black Montana markers, a HUGE blank canvas ( We are talking 4' wide and 8' tall here) and a theme. Here is the thing, the theme is announced only seconds before the warriors are set to draw. You have never seen a battle like this. With a Live DJ spinning well into the evening it's a full on party up in here!

CREATIVE BY DESIGN
Over the years, we've had attendees mention they were bummed to miss out on their normal Sunday church service as they were away from home for the conference. We decided to invite those who've stuck around the morning after for a small worship service and Bible study together with the Creative by Design community.
