Are you procrastinating on creative projects? Feeling like you're in a creative rut with your passions? With only so much time during your hectic schedule, what do you need to get back on track?

What started off as a web series quickly turned into a community of creatives challenging each other to turn their passion projects into a source of joy and inspiration. Amanda Kelly Espiritu and Sri Thayi had both been dreaming of producing a monthly web series and several event series in NY and Beyond. After spending over seven hours perched on comfy couches at a furniture store in Meatpacking and dancing through some Chelsea art galleries to get their creative juices flowing, Creative Surrender Studios was born.

The Creative Surrender web series spotlights the entire creative journey and all the challenges that come along with it. Each episode dives into deep talks, throwing love bombs at their friends, and doing crazy things in public to challenge each other out of whatever creative rut they may be languishing in. Their invite only, curated Creative Surrender: Passion Sprints workshop aims to light up a collective fire and creatively surrender to what needs to be done for your life today. All are welcome :)

Our intention for each one of us: Electrify our creative synapses with collective collaboration, immerse ourselves in our creative flow states, and to push the understanding placed on Self and our interaction with society.

We aim to provide a container for you to have both structure and freedom for spontaneity. Some art supplies and snacks will be provided, but please bring a small snack to share with your fellow creatives and any materials you might need to work on your passion project or collaborate with fellow creatives.


Creative Surrender Studios brings together creative innovators and entrepreneurs to showcase and experiment creatively, socially, and intellectually in tandem with the current cultural landscape.
