Creative community in Bismarck, North Dakota


event planning + creative direction

Need: The Bismarck community is filled with creative makers of all kinds, but without a space for them to connect, grow, and learn from one another. It's easy to feel alone, unconfident in your craft, and discouraged.

Solution: Makewell was designed to fill that gap, and be a space for all makers to come together, hear each other's stories, and challenge each other for the better. We've had two sold-out events in 2017, skilled local vendors, and several inspiring speakers. We've also hosted free monthly events, and have an upcoming maker retreat in December.

I also worked with a team of artists to make this event possible:
