The Peculiar Collective was created in 2019 under the premise of building family around passion across Maryland. Fast Forward four years, over 12 events, countless virtual happy hours, tons of collaboration with over 1,000 members across the United States and multiple countries.


Within the last 4 years we have grown our family from 7 to > 1.2K.  Our goal is not only to build an audience, but we also pride ourself on strengthening peer to peer relationship.



We have stretched our network across over the DMV + 22 states + 9 countries with active users and late night editing Zoom sessions.


The Peculiar Collective prides itself on family, no matter the ethnic background.  Its not only a learning environment but it's also a network of creatives.
