Full-Time Creative Work on a Part-Time Schedule
This annual panel is for any group with a goal. It presents the vital basics of group management and networking that can apply to literally any project, from hobbiest to professional. Whether your goal is a career or professional-level hobby, your projects are a full-time job and you have only part-time hours to accomplish them. Much of achieving your goals rests with everyone helping each other with the skills, training, or talents no one individual has. Topher Davila (art director, GeekdomWear), Heather Joseph-Witham, Ph.D. (Mythbusters), Amber Goelst (Wacom Enterprise/Education), Sean Glumace (Adobe education leader), Gene Turnbow (general manager, Krypton Radio), Renah Wolzinger (higher education leadership: statewide technical assistance provider), Brendan Creecy (Radio Brendo Man podcast), Ron Coleman, Ph.D (molecular geneticist), Stephen Burns (Photoshop digital artist, author, and lecturer), Chris Dickens (writer and co-creator of Vigilante Project), and Mario Martinez (co-creator, TomatoTV) provide a mix of speaking, questions, and some short interactive applications where the audience can directly apply the topics covered. Handouts will be provided that cover tips, wisdom, and dos and donts from previous panels. As a bonus to help get your creative work life further along, you'll get a one-year subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud. They also have a second tool to give away of particular use to anyone that even touches artwork: A Wacom tablet! You must be at the panel to be eligible for either giveaway.
