We’ll provide individuals with resources, studio spaces, mentors, and whatever else they may need to materialize a concept. We’ll help them create whatever it is they have in mind; whether that’s a film, a short story, an art piece, clothing, etc. We encourage members of the program to create something that also has a social message behind it, however it is completely up to the person. We aren’t here to tell members of the program what to make, we exist simply to help them achieve their creative goals, whatever that may be.
