Our intention is to create a safe space for BIPOC, Femme, and LGBTQ+ Creatives to learn from industry professionals!

The event will first feature a panel discussion, moderated by filmmaker Kala Bradford, where our guests will have the opportunity to learn from these creatives' journeys and their experiences in their craft. Then, audience members will have the opportunity to take a more hands-on approach as each panelist will lead their own mini workshop. Folks who are joining us will have the opportunity to partake in all the stations (Audio, G&E, and Camera) as we announce timed rotations!

You won't want to miss this lovely event! Suggested donation is $10. RSVP below!
