CreativeRush fosters authentic connections between members of the creative community in Wichita. We provide an open home for creative individuals to collaborate, connect, and inspire one another, bridging the gaps between the various artistic mediums.  Through in-depth panel discussions with industry professionals, skill-building workshops, and events showcasing the work of artists in the community, CreativeRush provides the opportunity for each individual to discover, harness, and express his/her unique creative vision. The vision is then expanded upon by the chance to partner those gifts with others who have complementary ambitions.

Manifesto

What do a chef, a video producer, and an accordion player have in common? How about a playwright, a tattoo artist, and an interior designer? Creativity. We are all fueled by the same force. Our place in the world is in our respective studios. Our purpose is to share our gift. Creativity. Most non-creatives think it’s easy to manifest. Those of us who manifest it regularly know it’s anything but. It’s easy to work through a burst of inspiration, but what about the other 265 days out of the year? How do we keep creating? CreativeRush is a way to share ideas, inspiration, and experiences. Our manifesto is simple. We want to create a community for creative people to meet other creative people, learn more, and do better work. By being a part of this community, you agree to challenge your idea of creativity by learning, inspiring, collaborating and DOing MORE.

”Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.” So how do you work? That’s what we want to know. Everyone has a process, a method, and no process is more right than anyone else’s.” –Chuck Close
