Our team is doing its best to adhere to CDC guidelines while still maintaining our mission to promote and advance the careers of Latinx creators.
One way we have done this is by reaching out to our members via our targeted virtual workshops and workshop series in which we bring together industry professionals and emerging creators alike to discuss the current landscape of our industry. Through these workshops, we aim to highlight, inspire, and provide opportunities for creators and industry professionals to learn from one another and continue moving forward in these unprecedented times.
Additionally, we have moved all of our staple events to a virtual format through which we aim to be as accessible as possible, providing an increased amount of Emerging Content Creators scholarships as well as newly introduced economic waivers.
Moving forward, we will continue to adapt our programming and initiatives to ensure the safety and health of our community.
