Back in October 2017, a small group of Sonic artists wanted a place to meet up and create art together. They formed a small Discord server called, “The Sonic Artist Meetup,” where the initial hunt for a venue began. In March 2018, after finding a spot they went down to promote at the SXSW conference Sonic the Hedgehog panel. On June 2018, we held our first in-person festival where fans across the US gathered in Dallas, Texas.
At Chaos Creators, our mission is to amplify the voices of talented Sonic creators and fans, igniting their passion for creative expression.
We use Chaos as our mascot because we believe together our chaotic energy grows
In 2019, after a year hiatus, the group rebranded to Chaos Creators to be more inclusive of all content creators such as artists, musicians, voice actors, game designers, animators, and collaborative projects.
The new date was set for June 2020, however, with COVID-19, the group decided to postpone the in-person art festival.
The chaos never died.
Instead, online festivals were held during the fall and winter where a showcase of works and creators were displayed. The group also expanded to hosting on multiple fan projects across the community. The in-person conventions return and now continue to expand.

Message from the Founder
When I initially started this project, I just wanted to meet my friends that were artists and creators. After the initial event I realized we needed a place to meetup that was more than online. After meeting Phoenix, we worked on building this community and the projects.
Creating Sonic art was a huge driving force for me to learn and grow as a person. I'm thankful for where this has led me as a creator myself and I wanted to provide a space that helps others. This community we've built shows our love to this franchise.
So why Chaos? There was something about the final form of Chaos that seemed dragon-like and mighty formed by many emeralds. I wanted it to represent the community of creators. Lil Drip (the Chao) represents the child-like creativity we all keep. It's fun and supportive. Chaos is grows just like we do.
