is to teach, encourage + mentor
the next generation of entrepreneurs,
creative leaders/thinkers & collaborators.
Welcome to our Academy's 1st digital event experience!
We're excited to re-connect with our Creative Scholars
+ meet new ones from around the country!
This Workshop idea was originally designed for an
in-person fundraising event in Williamsburg, Brooklyn;
but as the times shifted we decided to shift
& pivot along with it.
A panel discussion during our Photoshoot Production Workshop, Sponsored by Holyrad Studio
is a 1 month creative mentorship program that offers our Creative Scholars an opportunity to learn from
a Creative Mentor who currently lives in their purpose and is currently working within a career/field that the CS is highly interested in.
