A year-round conference in the arts.
Symposium features virtual seminars and panels on screenwriting, filmmaking, and publishing, plus at least one no-cost "Town Hall" discussion a month.
Like Pipeline Artists, our approach is to tell creatives what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. And let’s face it: no one learns when advice is sugarcoated. RealTalk™ and honesty helps everyone build a path to their own unique career goals. Rip off the veneer and join in.
