From a press release:

Creative individuals from across Northeastern Pennsylvania will gather at the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center on Tuesday, Aug. 20 from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. for the next NEPA Creative meetup.

Presented each month by Internet marketing company Coal Creative and Wilkes-Barre Connect, an extension of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce, the free event is open to all creatives in NEPA, including artists, musicians, developers, graphic designers, writers, inventors, filmmakers, and photographers. It is designed to promote collaboration, brainstorming, and sheer moral support for creatives in the region.

This month, there will once again be various breakout options for creatives to connect with and learn from other creatives in the region, in addition to an open-style layout. The featured breakout session lineup includes speed painter Devon O’Keefe, fiber artist Lauren Scott, drag queens Trixie and Harpy Daniels, and actor/playwright/director Adam Ercolani.

The meetups are generally held on the third Tuesday of every month at the Wilkes-Barre THINK Center (7 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre), just off of Public Square in downtown Wilkes-Barre. Creatives throughout NEPA are encouraged to attend and provide their ideas and suggestions on how to shape future meetups so they provide a worthwhile, value-added monthly experience for creatives of all kinds in the area.

NEPA Creative gives people an opportunity to create and be involved with something that supports innovation, creativity, and increased passion for arts, entertainment, and culture in our area. Last month featured breakout sessions with Electric City Music Conference organizer Joe Caviston, singer/songwriter Brendan Brisk of the Brendan Brisk Blues Band, and playwright, director, and actor Adam David.

The meetup is free, and complimentary food and beverages will be provided. An RSVP is requested to ensure there is enough food and beverages for everyone. Visit to RSVP, and for more information, e-mail Holly Pilcavage at
