Whew. What a past few months it’s been. One thing is for sure – it’s now more important than ever that creators are developing their businesses to live life on their own terms. Here at REC we’ve been focused on making sure that our creators are more equipped to do so than ever before.
Our strategically curated educational programming guides you along your journey of creative entrepreneurship, helping you to understand the strategy behind building a powerful brand, developing a sustainable business, and living the creative lifestyle you desire.
The Season journey is broken down into 3 acts:
ACT I: Set the Stage (Why, What, When)
Starting Point is an orientation for new members of REC Philly. This event gives creators a deeper understanding of the program itself, their own needs and actionable next steps to grow as brand owners and creative entrepreneurs. It is designed to give REC members the perfect entry point into our proven process.
Members will participate in the following:
Meet the Agency
Room to Room
Room to Room is an experience designed to inspire collaborative creation between our members. Members are brought together and organized into groups. Each group collectively participates in a brief content strategy workshop, before being given 3 hours to use any of the studios in the REC Room to create a piece of work to be presented at the end of the event. This experience challenges members to adopt a “work to publish” mentality to overcome creative roadblocks.
*Space is very limited due to Covid-19
At Room to Room creators will:
Explore the REC Room studios
Accomplish a creative task
ACT II: Conflict and Journey (How, Where)
Season Journey – A 6 month window to lock in and make process toward goals:
Learn – Gain strategies & skills at programming
Create – Demonstrate skills in creative & business tasks
Collab – Build & nurture relationships
Independent doesn’t mean alone– REC’s programming will give you access to over 100 industry experts who can help you refine your strategy.
The REC APP
After SP & R2R each creator will have a clear understanding of what they want to accomplish and which tasks & skills will be necessary to achieve it. Creators can use the REC App to stay up to date on upcoming events, connect with other creators, and apply for valuable opportunities. The app is your connection point to all of your member tools & resources.
ACT III: Resolution + Reflection
At the end of each season, members are encouraged to attend Check Point, where they can work with a Creative Coach to review their season’s performance and set new goals. For the best experience, Checkpoint is encouraged for members at least four months into the program. For members who join mid-season, we encourage you to attend Starting Point, Room to Room and other events before registering for your first Checkpoint.
At Checkpoint you will:
Audit goals accomplished + Certifications earned
Evaluate growth using the Creator Score
Set New Goals
LIVE at REC
A celebration highlighting emerging members of our community.
At Live At REC creators can:
Celebrate their Season’s progress
Reconnect with collaborators & create new connections
Earn awards based on Season performance
Proceed to next Season to continue your growth!

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve taken some time to internally reflect on our growth as a company, past milestones, & the impact we’re creating in the arts community.
2020 was far from what we anticipated the first year in our new space to look like. We opened, we closed, we evolved our product, we furloughed our team, and had a chance to open yet again.
