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 (shoutout to all the folks with their phones out, selling vintage on Etsy while waiting on their next Lyft passenger).
This month, Creative Release is happening June 19 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m, and will feature a reading from Nashville Youth Poet Laureate Haviland Whiting; a pop-up shop with Poni Silver of Black by Maria Silver; CBD samples and flower arrangements by YUYO Botanics; the world premiere of NATIVE‘s Hookerlegs Nashville Fashion Week documentary; yoga by Hot Yoga; cocktails recipes from The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club; food recipes by Folk; vegan ice cream from KOKOS; a to-be-announced non-profit activation brought to you by Nashville with Nicole; a photo booth from Hi-Fi Media; and of course, music by the artists featured in the July issue. What a time!
