Creative + Development brings a collaborative and educational environment to students – introducing and nurturing their skills and interest in the areas of creative content and technology development. In our instructor lead educational programming, we use a hands on approach taught by practicing professionals to give students real world experiences and tactics that they can apply to their projects and in the field. Students will participate in weekly classes and have access to the latest technology and creative platforms.
Our mission for Creative + Development is to introduce and equip youth in underserved and underrepresented communities for careers and opportunities in our focus areas: creative content and the development of its distribution technologies. Our strategy to accomplish this includes providing educational programming, access to resources, entrepreneurial training and growth support all while creating a pipeline in those same communities for talent retention and an ecosystem of entrepreneurial creatives and tech developers.
Many students go to school everyday and are not given the opportunity to explore or expand on their talent or interest in the tech and creative spaces while in school or out of school – or both! With Creative + Development we want to nurture your creative and technical side by providing an educational, collaborative and fun environment.
Are you a professional in the creative or tech field? Are you passionate about your craft and have always said to your self ” I should share my knowledge with the next generation”? Well here’s your chance. Don’t let your talent rot away in a box – leave a legacy behind with the next generation of creatives and innovators by teaching Creative + Development workshop.
