Get Sticky With It

As one of the most popular creative networking groups in Manhattan, ADHESIVE has upheld their core mission of “sticking creatives together”for over seven years, building our member base from a mere ten participants to over 2,800 members. Recently, ADHESIVE took the leap to expand to the West Coast, setting up shop in beautiful San Francisco. Our membership has always extended to a wide range of artists, consisting of photographers, photo assistants, art/film/video directors, retouchers, graphic designers, hair/makeup/wardrobe stylists, producers, agents, writers, developers and their assorted creative friends.

Sticking Together

The purpose of Adhesive is to stick like-minded creatives together in a casual environment. We provide a unique approach to industry functions, reviving face-to-face social networking (over drinks, of course)! The NYC branch was born in August of 2007, and has since then held monthly meetings at various public locales in New York City. The Frying Pan, Brooklyn Bowl, Sweet & Vicious, B-Bar, and photo studios such as Picture Ray Studios are just a few who have humbly welcomed us into their venues. The new branch of San Francisco was launched in the Fall of 2014 and we are looking forward to its growth!

Stick It To ‘Em

Each event is spread through our membership base by way of email, one being a Save the Date and the other, a reminder of the approaching event. As a result of that mailing, each event draws approximately 100+ people depending on the season, weekday, and weather, among other variables.

Stick With Us

Adhesive is a not-for-profit organization. Membership is free. There are, however, three rules to membership.

  • You must be creative in your work and/or interests.
  • You must be friendly.
  • You must wear a name tag. No matter how cool you think you are.
