This is a guest post from Sarah Jones, community manager at web design company VIM Interactive and co-organizer of Create Baltimore.

The fourth annual Create Baltimore is taking place this Saturday. Here are a few reasons why you should come:

  1. We’re giving over $1000 in grants toward your ideas.
  2. You belong. Whether you are a creative, techie, business professional, artist, teacher, care about your neighborhood, are really fired up about something that needs to change, need some new friends or just have a story to tell, you belong at Create.
  3. This is the perfect opportunity to share your passions, connect with others and help create good things in Baltimore.
  4. We’re getting the conversation started Friday night using the very fun Socent Hustle approach. Those who like a good time should snatch up an “and hustle” ticket or two and get excited. The goal here is to create as many serendipitous interactions as possible.
  5. Breakfast and lunch are provided by some of our favorite local spots: Zeke’s CoffeeHoehn’s Bakery and Charm City Gourmet.

Doors open at 8:15 a.m. at City Neighbors Hamilton. The opening session starts at 9 a.m. and we’ll roll from there. Participants are encouraged to tell their story and share ideas in the morning, interact with new people at lunch, find a topic of interest for the afternoon and help define the assets of Baltimore throughout the day. Closing should wrap up around 5 p.m. with plenty of platforms to help keep the conversation going.
