OMPA Creatives of Color Collaborative Wieden and Kennedy

We are excited to announce that our premier diversity event is back! OMPA, Wieden+Kennedy, and Marmoset are partnering to bring you the Spring 2019 Creatives of Color Collaborative. This edition will be even bigger and better, with interactive stations like the Mentor Corral; Group Therapy for writing, design, and music; and Recruiters Row. Our primary goal is to connect professionals of color.

XRAY.FM will be on site to capture interviews during the event, and the always delicious Mundo Catering will provide hors d’oeuvres.


Get Involved: If you’re interested in serving as a mentor, offering consultations to attendees, or are actively recruiting, please email lisa@ompa.org.

Event FAQs

Will there be food and drinks?

Yes! We’ll provide drinks and Mundo Catering will provide food for everyone to snack on.


What’s the parking situation?

Paid street parking throughout the area. The Brewery Blocks parking garage is also a few blocks away and would cost a maximum of $7. Normal rates are $4/hour, but the $7 max applies from 5pm-1am on Thursdays.


Is the venue ADA accessible?

Yes, but please try to give us a heads up if you will need assistance so we can have an escort meet you in the lobby.


Is there secure bike parking?



How can I get there by public transportation?

Bus lines #20 and #77 will drop you within a couple blocks. The streetcar also comes close on 11th (W+K is on NW 13th).


I’m not a member of OMPA. Can I still come?

Definitely! This event is free and open to everyone. We do often charge for events, and in those cases OMPA members get in for free or a reduced rate. See ompa.org/join for all the perks of being a member!
