Nest:Space – Creator’s Club

If you or your coworkers create things that positively impact others, we want to meet you!

The “Creator’s Club” exists to connect Central Nebraska’s top local photographers, videographers, designers, content creators, business creators, podcasters, and event planners (to name a handful of creator types), all in one spot.

Central Nebraska’s monthly “Creator’s Club” is meeting again on the last Thursday of this month, September 30th, from 5 pm to 6 pm, and you’re invited!

Who’s Invited? You are invited to join us if you love creating things for yourself, your job, and others.


Creator’s Club is an ongoing networking event (the last Thursday of every month), located at “Nest:Space – Premier Coworking” in Downtown Kearney! Location here: https://NestSpace.co/Gmaps

Beyond meeting, greeting, and rubbing shoulders with other imaginative and talented creators in the Central Nebraska area, maybe some personal and professional relationships will spawn from our meetups (in fact, some already have). 🙂

There is no cost to join this club! If you know a local creator that deserves to be in the club, please let them know we’re getting together or feel free to bring them!

P.S. For those over 21, you can BYOB!

Getting Educated on Medical Marijuana

Sign the Petition/Learn About Medical Marijuana

A majority of states have legalized medical marijuana but Nebraska isn’t one of those states. We will hear from a state-wide campaign pushing for a constitutional amendment to allow Nebraskans the ability to treat their bodies with medical cannabis.

On October 11 at Tru Café Nebraskans for Sensible Marijuana Laws will join us to give us insight on their campaign and give you an opportunity to sign the petition. This event is organized by Buffalo County Young Democrats and Nebraskans for Sensible Marijuana Laws and hosted by Tru Cafe.
