While the in-person aspects of the annual CTN animation eXpo move to 2021, CTN in partnership with Visit Burbank have reimagined the 2020 edition as a virtual, online event. CTN-LIVE, which has a “Revive and Thrive” theme, will take place online Nov. 16-22. However, this will not be just another online event. CTN-LIVE is designed as a week-long retreat to reboot, recharge and reset for artists to work together toward new landscapes, channels and opportunities.
“I would be remiss if I didn’t do this. I feel it is important for us to support the community now more than ever,” says founder of the Creative Talent Network and producer of the CTN-LIVE, Tina Price.
Offered free of charge, CTN-LIVE will be a 24/7 immersive creative week-long retreat open to anyone looking to recharge their artistic energies and to get ready for 2021. This one-of-a kind event will offer interactive experiences, coaching, talks, demos, recruiting, scholarships, and current topics that are resonating in all our lives and to help launch us as creators into 2021.
“As the Animation Capital of the World and home to entertainment companies big and small, Burbank is our physical home and largest supporter of the international animation community,” says Price. “Partnering with Visit Burbank makes perfect sense as it offers an invaluable relationship overflowing with opportunities for both business and creative professionals. The outpouring of support from everyone I’ve spoken to in the community is simply amazing. I invite everyone to join us this year as entrance to the main event is free of charge.”
CTN along with the community will be bringing inspiration and opportunities to diverse artists of all ages, ethnicities, and geographic locations in this important ‘give back’ campaign with donated sponsorship giveaways from various artists and community partners along with one-of-a- kind artist enrichment scholarship programs valued at thousands of dollars to help recipients get connected and achieve their goals.
Registration is free and open now.
