Key Holder Residency
Distinctly Creative’s Keyholder Residency is an opportunity for black creative entrepreneurs to have access to the coworking + makerspace in exchange for working 4 hours a week for Distinctly Creative. The residency is awarded to black creative entrepreneurs who hope to gain more knowledge and improve their skillets. Three creatives are selected per session (spring/summer, fall, and winter) by the Distinctly Creative staff.
