Group Crits are monthly gatherings bringing together makers + collectors hosted by Stella of Hudson River Exchange. Join us to discuss the things you’re thinking about creatively or about your small business.

It’s one part facilitated discussion in small + large groups (a la art school group critiques meets quick fire think tank) and one part getting to meet fellow creatives.

We invite you to bring a question or something you’re working on that you’d like group feedback on. It’s not required but we do ask that you be open to participating in conversation, contributing support or sharing thoughts!

Keep an eye out as we add new locations. They are generally the third Thursday each month. Space is limited so follow us on Instagram or be in our mailing list for updates!
