Invitation to Annual Creative Activist Summit at the Dan Eldon Center
Our annual CAP members gathering is at the Dan Eldon Center for Creative Activism in Malibu, CA. It’s a great opportunity to share ideas and resources with other like-minded folks and to communicate how the Creative Visions’ network can help support your project. You’ll get inspired for sure, you’ll probably meet some new friends, you’ll most likely get some good advice, and you may even get a tan.
Access to CAP’s Exclusive Online Social Networking Community
The online hub is currently under development with Ning. As soon as it’s launched you’ll have exlcusive access to an invaluable network of experts and creative activists in the media and arts industry from which to draw and share resources. You’ll also be informed about events and online networking opportunities that may support your strategies for funding projects, distributing productions, or expertise in working overseas.
Project Announcement in Creative Visions Newsletter
We’ll brag about you in our email newsletter to our entire mailing list and will always look out for ways to incorporate your latest news and events into ours.
