Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK!

We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: We invite you to bring your expertise, questions, and elevator pitches to the table to workshop and discuss.

Join us on the first Wednesday of every month (and our Facebook group) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and share tips on freelance issues.

September SPARK: The Future of Freelancing

Client nonpayment. Healthcare. Time management. Wellness. The challenges freelancers face are unique--and so are the solutions. What matters most to the future of freelancing?

Our September SPARK meetup will tackle the freelance issues you think are most pressing and the insights you’ve already gained as a community. Freelancers Union is here to support you, and we’ll build our future agenda around what you need.

Our conversation will cover:

  • The most serious challenges freelancers face

  • Your strategies for surviving--and thriving

  • Building an advocacy-based agenda for a better freelance future


$$ The event is FREE $$

There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.

Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.

Our meeting will be taking place at Capital Factory + The DEC facility located in the Centrum building on the corner of Oak Lawn Avenue and Cedar Springs Rd. (3102 Oak Lawn Dallas, TX 75219).
