This year we realized one of our goals, which is to offer a series of Cre8con-affiliated Workshops for creative professionals that will take place the day after the main Cre8con event.
We are excited to announce 4 such Workshops, all happening on Saturday, September 28th.
NOTE: Registering for the main event, Cre8con on Friday, Sept. 27th, DOES NOT INCLUDE access to any of the Cre8con-affiliated Workshops on Saturday, Sept. 28th, which must be registered for separately.
There are 2 different timeslots, each with 2 simultaneous Workshops, so you will be able to attend 2 workshops at most.
