Creative Events Round-Up: February

For more than 10 years, we have worked with long-time partner and friend, Robin Enterprises, and a local designer to create and print our quarterly creative events calendar. With mixed emotions, we have decided to move the calendar in a digital direction and our most recent winter calendar will be our final edition in print.

Our goal remains the same— to be your number one resource on what's happening in the Columbus creative community. The events we share on our digital calendar will focus primarily on opportunities within our creative community that allow for:

  • Meaningful connections

  • Career advancement

  • Thought leadership/education

At Portfolio Creative, regularly attending events put on by our peers has helped us develop and discover our own unique passions for Columbus. We hope that this calendar will allow you to meet someone new, identify a volunteer opportunity that fits your personal and professional development goals and provide you with a deeper admiration for our awesome city.

We’ve highlighted just a few of the events coming up in February:
