Working as a creative involves a lot of time spent looking for breakthroughs and inspiration, which isn’t always easy. However, collaboration and community can greatly benefit your creative work through the exchanges of ideas, fresh perspectives, and networking opportunities. Joining a coworking space can provide all of this and more by putting you in contact with other creatives in your field and granting you the exposure that you need. 

Furthermore, coworking spaces have recognized the value in providing the creative community with affordable and functional workspace for a diverse set of practices. In fact, as coworking spaces continuously evolve in an attempt to attract and retain members, so do the range of amenities available to creatives. To help all creatives alike, we found some of the best creative coworking spaces in the U.S.:
