Part of event series: CCA@CCA Fluid Mutualism Symposium
Creative Citizens in Action (CCA@CCA)
Every profession gathers. From conferences to residencies, we all have discipline-driven concepts of what it means to get together. And the pandemic has upended them all. As creative professionals navigate this time of mindful transition back to in-person experiences, this workshop is intended to help participants plan more meaningful, productive, and joyful professional gatherings and to be more deliberate about fostering environments where many different types of people feel welcome.
This workshop is open to all members of the CCA community. Bring ideas, questions, and experiences to share! Participants will receive a copy of A Toolkit for gathering.
Capacity is limited to 10 participants; registration is required. Register now ➞
