BUILD AND BLOOM is a safe space for creatives, both online and in-person. our online community is made up of many different types of creative individuals and all levels are welcome to join in — there is a spot for everyone at the table!

created by jessica whitaker in october 2016, BUILD AND BLOOM stemmed from the concept of community over competition. jessica noticed there was a lack of encouraging online communities for young creatives and wanted to fill the gap.

the online community is composed of photographers, graphic designers, bloggers, and more. because the group is so diverse with different specialties, members are able to receive many different perspectives on varying topics. collaboration is encouraged and blossoms from this safe learning environment. 

the in-person community comes together in workshops that take place all across the united states and europe. workshops center around three topics: photography, social media, and marketing strategies. for more information about our workshops, including cities + dates, click here.

BUILD AND BLOOM has a lot in store for the future, and we are stoked to have you along for the ride. we will always remain a secure place to share work, ideas, and inspiration. 

“when we build one another up, we can blossom together”
