Megan Kranzler, local creative and owner of Olive Ridley Studios, works behind the scenes to bring Savannah’s creative professionals together for monthly cSpot events.
According to Kranzler, cSpot was first started in 2006 as a way for creatives to connect with other like-minded people. In its earlier iterations, Cari Clark Phelps of Clark Creative Communications and Salacia Salts organized much of cSpot by herself. Then the pandemic hit and cSpot took a break from hosting its in-person socials throughout 2020 and 2021. In 2022, Kranzler joined efforts with Phelps to bring cSpot back.
cSpot meetings are social and casual in nature, but also a great opportunity for community members to share ideas and network. “What’s unique about cSpot is that it’s really geared toward creatives in particular,” said Kranzler. “These socials are helpful in getting creatives connected to others in the industry. At cSpot, people build relationships in the creative community and meet contacts who they can go to with questions or to bounce ideas off of.”
Kranzler says that the monthly meetups are also a good opportunity for startups who are in search of creative talent. All types of creatives attend cSpot, and the hope of organizers is that the meetups are both a social outlet and a professional opportunity for attendees.
cSpot meetups are typically scheduled on the second Tuesday of every month from 5:30-7:30pm at a different location around town. All are welcome to join, and advance registration is recommended, but not required. To learn more about cSpot and to RSVP, visit them on Facebook or sign up to receive cSpot updates via email.
