The origins of #thenativecreative


In January 2015, I co-created #thenativecreative with my dear friend Michaela Cisney (@saltwatermocha). We wanted to bring a hashtag into the Instagram world that would celebrate the simplicity of the creative impulse. 

Building a community around #thenativecreative has been an incredible opportunity to see the world through diverse lenses and to discover the little things that inspire people daily. Today there are nearly 350k contributions to the hashtag worldwide.

Join us in sharing glimpses of your story and tag your photos that embody #thenativecreative ethos. I've featured some of my favorite contributions from the community below.
