If you guys have been following Brit + Co for awhile now, you know that we LOVE meeting up with you IRL. After all, the “Co” in Brit + Co stands for Community! Since 2013, we’ve hosted pop-up events, conferences, and festivals in cities ranging from San Francisco to Austin to New York. But we’ve always dreamed of heading to Los Angeles, a city where our favorite artists, bloggers, and celebs all reside. Can you imagine the creativity we’d be able to spark in a town like that!?
Lucky for us, our dreams have come true. That’s right, kicking off in August, and lasting for an entire month (!) through September, Brit + Co will be bringing our award-winning event series #CreateGood to LA.
#CreateGood is an immersive creative experience dedicated to all things GOOD. We want women to become their best selves by learning to feel good, be good, and do good. There will be hands-on creative activities, inspiring speakers, and — of course — all the Instagrammable art installations your color-loving heart desires. Tickets will be sold by day, with special events happening by night. All ages are welcome. Get yours here!
More than anything, we believe in doing good. A percent of proceeds from #CreateGood will go back to our favorite non-profit organizations that are dedicated to helping inspire creativity and also support women and girls.
What else can you expect? Well, first off, this #CreateGood event is going to be bigger and better than ever. Hosted at Santa Monica Place (yep, that’s right smack in the middle of Santa Monica), we’re taking over 15,000 square feet of GOODness. Our professional design squad is already busy at work coming up with life-sized installations that will get you (and the internet) talking. And because we believe in all things DIY, each installation will have more than just a photo-worthy backdrop; we’ll actually let YOU do some of the creating as well. We can’t give away too many of our secrets now, but just know that you will be getting your hands involved, all in GOOD fun.
At the end of the experience, you’ll drop into a #CreateGood Shop, where you can snag some exclusive B+C merch as well as support a variety of our favorite LA-based artists and brands.
Warning: You may be tempted to return more than once. We’ll be announcing our evening speaker and workshop lineup over the coming weeks. Trust us when we tell you that each event will be unlike the other. One of the best parts of LA is the different types of creative communities, and we fully intend to represent as many as we can — from entertainers to entrepreneurs to artists and beyond.
More than anything, we want you to leave #CreateGood feeling like a better version of yourself. You’ve learned something. You’ve made something. You’ve had fun. You’ve given back in the process. That’s what it’s all about. And that’s what we fully intend to deliver.
We hope you’ll snag your tickets before they sell out. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your friends, family, or even a co-worker — couldn’t we all use a little bit more GOOD in our lives?
See you in LA!
