“The future of every community lies in capturing the passion, imagination, and resources of its people.” — Ernesto Sirolli
Meeting in person is difficult.
Friends are spread around the world.
And Zoom is tiresome at best.
Is there a way to mimic the feel of being close by?
As many of you know, I recently launched a community called Co-Create with my good friend Jake Housdon. Sharing skills, collaborating on a creation and observing someone display their craft is difficult remotely.
I recently discovered something called Gather that changes the equation entirely. Imagine a virtual world meets Zoom... an interactive space where you can explore and drop in and out of multiple conversations.
Admittedly, this takes some getting used to. At Co-Create, we are using it in the following ways:
Hosting our creator campfires
Office hours where members share skills
Two creators collaborating on a creation
Chance encounters and water cooler talk
Creating in public where other members observe
And this is only the beginning. We plan to build our own virtual creator town. A place teeming with activity from a diverse set of creators.
A place where we...
Create freely and openly
Commingle diverse ideas
Teach and learn new skills
Display and celebrate creations
Rise together in a group genius
The old tools have their place. But a community centered on finding purpose and a scene of fellow travelers to fan the flames of creativity requires something more... creative.
Co-Create isn’t following the well worn path of communities. It is forging a new one for creators.
🤔 Food for Thought:
Are you a creator trying to find your way in the creator economy?
Are you looking for a safe place to create and learn without limits?
Would you like to meet like-minded people who will fan your flames of creativity?
