Hundreds of people from around the city enjoyed great art, music, food and conversations at InSpero's Steel City Makers 5 Man Show held October 23.
For Gina and Nancy, it was a dream realized as it combined in one event our vision for InSpero: nurturing and cultivating the creative community, providing collaborative events for artists to create together and give good gifts to Birmingham, starting conversations for the common good, and celebrating our creative community and our city.
We want to show you a few images from this magical night and thank a few of the amazing people and sponsors of this event.

We were stirred by Jonathan's discussion of territories vs. hierarchies as it relates to artists and writers. As a writer himself, he encourages creators to push past the tendency to compare and tend to their own journeys as creators.
