Workshops offer hands-on opportunities to develop, polish, or update skills in photography, film-making, graphic design, game design, and digital media. All are led by recognized professionals and curated to meet the particular needs of small creative businesses.
All of our conferences, showcases, exhibits and other events will provide networking and educational opportunities for the region’s creative entrepreneurs. Our events will also increase public awareness of the depth and breadth of innovative and creative services available here in the Appalachian Highlands.
