A community platform for artists & creatives -
Made by artists & creatives.

Finally, since June 22 we are in an official beta phase in order to test, improve and grow The Pending. We are so grateful and excited about all the good feedback that we received so far and the countless creatives that have joined us already! THANK YOU!

Due to the early start we also ask you to be patient with us. We will grow, learn and adapt all together on this journey and clearly want your feedback in order to improve! We deeply hope that we can make this a place for us and our communities that is used in the same supportive & useful way that it can be now! 

Love and appreciation, 

The Pending Team

Exclusively for creative communities!

No likes needed to like each other!

100% data protection & free from ads!


..and connect in an environment free from likes & followers.

Believing that deeper exchange – especially in artistic & creative fields – should not be defined by likes & followers we got rid of them.


..and bring projects to life by finding collaborators in and outside of your field.

Clearly knowing the diffculties when bringing projects to life we aim to connect people from all sorts of fields in order to make things happen togehter.

INSPIRE being yourself and bringing support, respect and diversity to our community.

Convinced that inspiration is the key to almost everything  we encourage everyone to build a community of diversity, authenticity and respect together with us. Dedicated to be a place for connection and communication on a supportive & non competitive level, we want to be a space to learn, inform, discuss, share and grow collectively.

Who we are?

Artists & dreamers with a vision. The vision of making this platform something unique together with you!

Based on years of professional experience in the creative & arts industry the idea for THE PENDING was born in the beginning of 2020.

Probably you can relate.. Our beautiful professions that are so much more than just jobs mean the world to us. They mean so much that we commit to all the difficulties, the hard work, the „?“ along the way and a life full of challenges in order to do what we love in a professional way.

There is no magic that could sort this out for us. But there’s a beautiful group of people with common needs, experiences and most important – the same passion for our craft. So what if there was a place where all of those people could come together. A place that is protected to the outside world and just for them, in order to exchange, to collaborate and last but not least: to inspire.

Based on these thoughts our platform THE PENDING came to life. Step by step and true to our name. We are and will be „pending“ on purpose and with full awareness in order to grow and bloom. And we are happy and proud to invite you to do the same together with us!

Who's included?

We are a platform for artists & creatives of all fields and scenes and want to be as inclusive as possible. If we forgot a category or you feel like we should add more options within them – we want to know that in order to change & improve! (

Hoping that your field is already included we kindly ask everyone to keep the community closed to artists & creatives only.
