Story is Everything!
A Master Class

PLEASE NOTE: Jerrica Cleland is unable to attend, due to a personal emergency.
The world of tomorrow is made up of the stories we tell today. Story is everything. It is the container for all our desires, dreams, and creations.  It is our tool for the transformation of life itself. What stories are you telling about tomorrow or the day after? What tools are you using to improve your storytelling abilities? How high do you want to rise with your art? 
This is an unprecedented Master Class Experience focusing on the future of creativity, story, character development, staging and entertainment.
Join two internationally known industry luminaries for a full day deep dive into the mechanics and magic of storycraft. Participants will learn from these masters how to marshal their creativity to new heights on their own path to artistic mastery and participants will also enjoy VIP privileges for a curated collection of speakers and special activities directly related to the importance of good storytelling throughout the CTNX conference.
More than just gaining access and knowledge at the workshop, participants will also have a curated journey throughout the CTN conference, as well as on the exhibition floor. All of this culminates in a final wrap-up session with our experts on Sunday, with a celebratory lunch to complete this masterclass. 
This one of a kind intensive program is designed for novice artists as well as professionals committed to honing their art, heart and mind in service to stories that can both entertain and change the world right now.
