Resilient Entrepreneurs!

Peace Creative, 

As most folks know, Circulate Creative has pivoted like most businesses due to the Covid-19 Global Health Pandemic and economic shutdown.  We quickly shifted and began hosting our very own CirculateMke Virtual Markets in order to continue supporting, uplifting & connecting local entrepreneurs and initiatives. 
So far we’ve produced 4 very successful (and experimental) CirculateMke Virtual Market engagements spotlighting 13 Creatives ‘infomercial’ style while generating thousands of organic impressions through online community marketing, social media promotions, live zoom audiences , live streaming, reposting and rebroadcasting our new Virtual Market experience. 


The CirculateMke Virtual Market series was designed as another gift, to YOU!
Over the years, in addition to the market, we have invited our network of amazing creatives, vendors & makers to Circulate Social Mixers, Building/Brainstorming Business Sessions and even offered ‘Coach Ups’. Many of you have taken advantage, expanding your professional relationships and knowledge. 
We have a huge new opportunity…Drum roll…..

We would like to send a sincere “Thank you” to all of the creative’s who have been vendors with Circulate over the last year. Circulate started first, because I made a promise to myself. During the 2015 holiday season I promised to only purchase my family’s gifts from artists/entrepreneurs that I hold near and dear to my heart. In this way my purchase would support people who created well crafted and meaningful products and the gift itself would hold a value that could not be bought in a corporate store. The second reason was to respond to the simultaneous nationwide call for a holiday season boycott of non-community owned box-stores and corporate chains. Although I agreed with it, I also understood that if you want people to make different choices you must also offer viable alternatives. Circulate was not created to eliminate corporate shopping altogether but to create options and begin the transformation from surviving to thriving for both our vendors and our communities.

We have hosted a wide variety of wonderful businesses. At the Circulate Markets you can gain knowledge from vendors about healthy practices, holistic healing and chemical free bath and beauty products. You can speak to artists who are also story tellers, giving you a sense of pride and connection to our city’s historical connectivity and cultural roots. For those who are paying attention Circulate is more than a market it is a reminder that we come from greatness. We are building a cooperative community and we are excited about expanding and growing!

As the fall season approaches we wanted to acknowledge our one year anniversary by per-determining the calendar for the rest of the year so that we can prepare for the most improved Circulate Markets yet.

For our first market “Circulate’ launched a pop- up market on ‘Black Friday’ the largest shopping day of the year to be hosted at TRUE Skool , an after school urban arts teen center located inside of the Grand Avenue Mall.

It was a great success and for the 2nd time we would like to offer shoppers the option to buy product , gifts and services directly from independent entrepreneurs who are from their community, thus keeping revenue in our communities. Again, we will host at TRUE Skool.
