State + Story Connects Victoria’s Creative Community.

It can be tough to know where to go to connect with fellow collaborators. State + Story is one of the groups that is bringing Victoria's creative community together.

“A lot of people work for themselves or are freelancers, and they say this is their big work social for the month. They connect with people who have similar issues — and someone there might know how to solve it.”

— Sarah Reid, Co-founder of State + Story

The monthly meetings are “usually” the last Thursday of every month, with morning meetups at Habit on Pandora or Club Kwench and evening sessions at Saint Franks. “There’s no agenda and everyone is welcome,” says co-founder Sarah Reid.

“It’s a great way to meet people.”

Coffee or Beer?

“The morning sessions are smaller and you really get to connect with people it’s a bit more intimate,” Reid says. “The evening ones are more like a party with a bunch of new people to meet. It’s a lot of fun.”

Dream Job     

Along with offering the potential to meet future collaborators, State + Story has launched a new online job board with a focus on the creative fields.
