Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design

A conversation series
for Jackson Creatives

Founded by Jessica Walsh
Hosted by Ilka Hadlock

Calling creative ladies in Jackson, Wyoming! Let's wine, dine, and have casual conversations on topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you’re a creative professional and would like to join, please request to join our Facebook group (Ladies, Wine & Design JH) & RSVP to events via our page.

December 6th, 7:00pm LWD Jackson Kick Off

Our inaugural meet-up will be a discussion about what YOU would like the LW&D chapter in Jackson to accomplish. What has been challenging in your career or creative development and how do you overcome it? As a creative, how are you "making it work" in Jackson? Please come prepared to share a little about yourself & your work. Location: Center for the Arts

January 24th, 7:00pm Setting up your business (correctly) in 2018!

Sarah Hamlin from the Wyoming Small Business Development Center will join us to explain the ins & outs of running your small business/ freelance business. She will answer questions like "should I be a sole proprietor or an LLC?" "what resources do we have in wyoming that help gals like me?" "do I need a jackson business license?" "do I need to file taxes for my side hustle?" and "what the hell am I doing?"

February 7th, 7:00pm The Intersection of Creativity and Business

Corinne Prevot, founder of Skida (headwear & accessories) will join us to tell the story of her colorful, creative business journey. The event will be held at JH Stillworks (so cocktails & design this time :))

March 7th, 7:00pm Work In Progress

Bring a project (can be artwork, a marketing campaign, design piece, video, website... you name it) that you'd like feedback on & we'll discuss, critique and collaborate. Location: The Community Room (at the top of the stairs) at the Whole Grocer.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work.
