The Melrose Creative Expo is Back, February 16, 2019!

The 2019 Melrose Creative Expo marks the fifth anniversary of the Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center for Technology, Innovation and Creativity.  Join us on Saturday, February 16 from 1:00 p.m. until 4 p.m. for an afternoon of family-friendly activities throughout the Melrose Center, including virtual reality and video green screen demonstrations, live audio recording sessions, short film screenings, theatre performances, photo studio portraits and vehicle simulator experiences.  Visit with a host of exhibitors from throughout the tech and creative communities, and help us celebrate the best audio, video, photo and digital design projects created during the past year at the Melrose Awards presentation.

The Melrose Center is also about collaboration and community.  Staff hold monthly meetups pertaining to audio, video, photo, design, theatre and makerspace activities, while local groups also use the space as a venue for meetups on topics ranging from robotics and podcasting to web development and game design.  Events such as Technoween, the Melrose Film Festival, Melrose in the Mix: Live Recording Sessions, Open Mic: The Voice of Melrose, and Script Orlando, further define the Center as a venue for emerging and established performers as well as inspirational and informative speakers from across Central Florida.

The Melrose Creative Expo provides the perfect opportunity to explore all the amazing resources the Melrose Center has to offer.  Come see for yourself, help us celebrate our first five years, and learn how you can be a part of the next five!
