What we’re creating for you

in Houston

You’re likely here because you invented something in Houston. Maybe it was a project, a business, a work of art, or a new technology. You solved a problem and made things better. At Creative Houston, we support people who make new things. We want to help them thrive in Houston.

Houston doesn’t get much credit as a creative city. The world doesn’t look here for great ideas. When creative people say they like living in Houston, outsiders are surprised.

At Creative Houston, we are exposing Houston’s creativity to the world and to ourselves. We keep track of its creative people, places and projects, and we try to introduce them around. We post short stories about them on this web site.

We hope you’ll point out more creative things to us, so we can add them to the web site. You can use it to explore Houston’s creativity. When you meet a skeptical outsider, you can send them here to learn.

We had a fancy online directory, but we couldn’t raise funds to keep it going. So now, we are grabbing our bootstraps, building a simpler site, and starting a new newsletter. We hope you will read it, share it, and buy a subscription at $5/month or $49/year. Only paid subscribers can comment and make suggestions. You don’t have to live in Houston to subscribe, but we’ll make you long to be here.


Our web site is puny now, so we could use your support. If you purchase the $49 newsletter subscription, we can showcase more of Houston’s creative professionals. We want to upgrade our tools and design. As our business grows, we hope to create events and a marketplace for things made in Houston.

Being in Houston, we get a lot of ideas. Please help us sort them out.
