After Hours: Bringing freelancers together, face-to-face

Share stories. Trade gigs. Discuss issues. Find common answers. Freelancers know they can do big things when they come together.

That’s why we’re proud to announce the launch of Freelancers Union After Hours, a nation-wide, free monthly networking event for freelancers to chat, brainstorm, and discover what’s next.

All After Hours events will be held at 6 pm local time on the first Wednesday of each month -- a perfect time for a nation of freelancers to unwind and connect with people who really understand you.

On Wednesday, Sept. 3, we’ll be kicking it off in coworking spaces we’ve partnered with in these cities:

The first After Hours theme will be: “What makes your city a great freelance city? What could make it better?”

This is just the beginning.

We want to see freelancers gathering at After Hours in cities across the country -- wherever freelancers are, which is everywhere.

If your city isn’t on the list yet, it’s up to you to make it happen.

Apply here if you’re interested in organizing an After Hours event in your town.

After Hours is about building lives of meaningful independence. We’re bringing freelancers from across the country together to discuss common issues, support one another, and build together.
