Makeshift Society: Networking Collective
Makeshift Society – a San Francisco-based networking collective for creative professionals – is now accepting applications. Describing itself as a “clubhouse for creatives”, the group encourages members to “make, learn, teach and think”.
The group’s aim is to facilitate collaboration between creative professionals, while offering them a comfortable shared workspace. Memberships range from $30 to $350 per month and provide varying levels of weekly access to the Makeshift Society Clubhouse, due to open in September.
Other perks include discounts from businesses that support Makeshift’s “mission of creativity and collaboration” and special rates for sponsored lectures, panels, classes and events on topics ranging from flower arranging and Photoshop tutorials to effective marketing. Members are also offered access to a members’ directory and a forum where they can post job listings and engage with professionals across the US.
“There are many co-working and networking options for technology startups in San Francisco, but far fewer for those in other creative fields,” the company notes.
