What is a Meetup?
A larger, community event that can be used to discover and connect with other creatives in your city. This event should feel more like a larger family reunion rather than just an intimate family dinner. Building relationships and connecting with one another is the most important thing you will do at this event. As with all such important gatherings food and drink are essential.
As a bigger event, Meetups are a little more involved. We’ve set up a few basic requirements to help your meetup be a successful and authentic Catholic Creatives event.
Who Should we Invite?
Meetups should gather 15-40 people, who you can’t wait to hang out with, from all kinds of creative fields in your area.
What are the Requirements for a Meetup?
Let’s talk about the fun stuff! As the host, you need to have attended a CC Meetup, Regional, or Summit, and you need a co-host to help. You’ll also need to use CC Brand Guidelines and use specific language in your materials. All this will be spelled out in the CC Meetup Guide, once it’s complete.
Where Should We Meet?
Somewhere spacious that’s cool, clean, and well-designed. You’ll need to provide food and beverages, or you may ask for people to bring their own beer & food. Take over a coworking space, rent out a coffee shop, or find a yacht to borrow.
What Should we Charge for an Event?
CC Meet Up Hosts can charge for tickets to food or rental costs, but we recommend keeping the event free if at all possible. If you can find local sponsors interested in helping you fund the cost of a meetup, you’re welcome to do that.
