7/24: NATIVE and WeWork Present: Creative Release

At NATIVE, we believe in the catharsis that comes with creativity. We think there’s nothing like that feeling you get when your hard work—the stuff that’s the result of sleepless nights in front of the laptop, sewing machine, or studio monitors—is finally ready to be released into the world. It might just be the coolest (and most anxiety-inducing) feeling there is.

To celebrate that feeling, NATIVE and WeWork present Creative Release, an event where the creative endeavors featured in the pages of NATIVE come to life. Every month at WeWork 901 Woodland, NATIVEs will get a chance to experience some of the finest creative projects in Nashville firsthand. But more importantly, you’ll get a get to meet the people who painstakingly built those projects with nothing but their blood, sweat, and side hustles (we hear you can make decent cash selling your plasma).

This month, Creative Release is happening July 24 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m, and will feature a Tarot Card reading from “Tarot Priestess and Reiki Healer” Violet Guide; a fiber, textile, and sculpture show from Beizar Aradini; a photography exhibition from Marcus Maddox; music by Super Duper; beer from Mad Tree; bites from Kawaii Poke; and a charity benefiting Humphrey’s Street Coffee. So many great local artists and businesses. So little time. It’s going to be another fun night!

While you’re there, check out Issue 73 of NATIVE and take a look around WeWork—we promise you won’t be disappointed. Free entry when you RSVP here.
