How creatives are uniting across the globe

After leaving Utah, a group of creatives found something was missing outside the Beehive state.  Photographer Benjamin Combs and musician A.J. Legrand say that Utah is unique in that the creative community is a supportive base for people pursing their passions. To fill the gap they found outside the state, they are growing an online community called Vagabond US that works to unite creatives around the globe.  The goal is to create a decentralized community of artists, influencers, and entrepreneurs who can support each other and network together.
 
"After we moved away from Utah, we came to realize just how crucial that support system was for us. AJ's wife Rachel had the idea to travel the country and take our passions on the road, so we've been trying to bring that love and encouragement that we found here to other people all around the country who might be struggling or doubting themselves or their purpose," explained Benjamin. 
 
The project is already taking off with connections being made daily. 
 
"We met up with a musician here who had some video footage that he thought had the makings of a good music video, but he didn't know how to edit it. In our network of people we've connected with, I know some really great editors, and we're going to get it edited for him so he can push it out for his fans," shared AJ.
 
If you'd like to join the community head to their Instagram, @vagabond_us. Shoot them a message there, tell them what you're creating, and what you're passionate about. They want to hear if you're struggling to find that inspiration or encouragement that you need, and tell us how we can help! We will ride for you.
