We want to show the GOOD that women can achieve in all areas of their life, from good food to good style to good work and good minds, and everything good in between.
Every day, we'll be open to the public for an immersive, selfie-worthy creative experience. By night, we’ll get a bit more intellectual, with talks by world-class speakers, creativity workshops, live performances, private events, and more.
#CreateGood will be open daily starting at 11am,
from October 4th—October 8th.
By day, we'll have all kinds of FREE, immersive, selfie-worthy,
creative experiences. By night, we'll feature ticketed opportunities

Answers to all the GOOD questions you probably have.
What is #CreateGood?
#CreateGood is a fully-immersive, five-day pop-up experience, running October 4th thru October 8th in New York City's SoHo District. Our goal is to highlight the GOOD women can achieve in all areas of their lives. We’ll have hands-on activities, a photo fun house, speakers, workshops, live performances, and more.
Who can attend the #CreateGood event?
Anyone! At Brit + Co, we believe everyone has GOOD in them and that everyone is creative. That's why #CreateGood is open to every single person looking to get a little extra good out of their day while also being creative in the process. If you can't attend in person, we have you covered! All content will be streamed on our social channels for a fully digital experience.
Does this event take the place of your annual Re:Make event?
While #CreateGood is filling in for Re:Make this year, that doesn't mean Re:Make will never come back. Think of #CreateGood as Re:Make's sister event who is just as fun and creative, but lives in New York City.
Why isn't Brit + Co hosting an event in San Francisco as they've done in years past?
We decided to switch things up this year and visit the East Coast for our annual event since we're always hanging out in San Francisco. West Coasters, keep your eyes and ears open as we haven't closed the door on future events in the Bay Area. And if you can make it east, come hang with us in New York City.
Will there be artisans selling products at #CreateGood?
We're doing something a little different with #CreateGood, meaning there won't be a festival day with artisans. But we'd love for all makers to attend and introduce themselves for future events that will include makers.
How do I get to #CreateGood?
#CreateGood will be held at 427 Broadway, New York, NY 10012. We recommend taking public transportation, a Lyft, or cab. You could also bike, walk, or even run there. Whatever you feel is best, we trust you.
What’s the dress code?
Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. Keep in mind that we’re constantly making, doing, and even sometimes dancing — so comfortable shoes and sleeves you can roll up are always recommended!
Can I bring my kids?
Kids are welcome and encouraged. We love seeing families get their creativity on together!
Where can I inquire about becoming a sponsor or speaker?
We're so glad you asked! Shoot us a note anytime your heart desires: firstname.lastname@example.org
