Megan Marie Myers/The Creativity Shakeout

On July 6th 2021 the Creativity Shakeout Run Club held its first organized gathering designed to connect and lift up creatives in Central Oregon.  The ...  Creativity Shakeout is a run and walking club designed to inspire creativity through movement and connection with other creative personalities in the community.  Founded by local artist and illustrator, Megan Marie Myers, The Shakeout allows creatives of all types and talents a consistent space to meet new friends and collaboration partners, share information, experiences, and resources, and learn about creative hobbies and careers across a variety of industries, all while getting some exercise along the Deschutes River.  On episode 32 of The Circling Podcast, Megan and I have a great conversation at Dudley’s Bookshop in Downtown Bend.  Megan shares her story of her relationship with her own creativity and how the steppingstones of life have led her to Bend where she is growing as an artist and business owner.   Megan's popular projects are inspired by the outdoors and the connection we have to our surroundings and to each other. Megan talks about the inspiration behind the Creativity Shakeout and how it was grown from a desire to give back to her creative community, and that, she has. Thanks for the coffee and the conversation Megan. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to Tuesday morning run club and following your growth and success as an artist, illustrator and storyteller.
