Connections are just a sweet part of our "connect, create, collaborate" motto at the Switchboard so we decided to round up a few lists of all of the cool things our creator friends are doing so you can go and participate in those,  too! 


Please note: If you are interested in any of these events or if you have any questions in regards to connections, please contact private venues personally or follow their social media to contact. The Switchboard is just here to help get you connected and we are not responsible for these events... except our own of course!
