An essential part of building a new career is reaching out and making yourself known to people in your areas of interest; your creative tribe. That is why we offer our SchmoozeFests! networking and presentation events. You are welcome to join other people who enjoy exchanging ideas, alerting others to art and design events, share industry concerns, and offering a word of encouragement. Everyone goes through a period when we feel as though we are going through career change considerations alone, but there are lots of people out there who know the same feelings and we may be able to help. These resources, plus the monthly Tony Luna Creative- Update blog (composed of emails sent in by people who have taken our courses and are now doing what they have wanted to do) allow us to stay in touch and help each other out. Take a look and be a part of a concerned community of talented professionals eager to lend a hand.

SchmoozeFest!

Our next SchmoozeFest is scheduled for Thursday, September 7, 2017 from 6:30 to 9:30 at the Art Center College of Design, South Campus, 950 South Raymond Avenue, Room #231 Pasadena, California.

What the heck is a SchmoozeFest!? A SchmoozeFest! is an event during which members of our community (and anyone interested) can present their ideas for their new product or service and the presentations are followed by a networking mixer where business cards are exchanged and sophisticated professionals meet members of their tribe. SchmoozeFests! are held three times each year, mid-January, mid-May, and mid-September, at the Art Center College of Design-South Campus (950 South Raymond Ave.) on the Thursday before the beginning of each Art Center trimester. Colleagues meet to sharpen their presentation skills, practice and get feed-back on their pitches, and share their ideas in an accepting atmosphere. After the presentations everyone mingles while sharing suggestions and giving encouragement. SchmoozeFests! are fun, inspiring, and a practical way to meet like-minded people. Read the Tony Luna Creative- Update monthly blog for exact dates and times. All are welcome!
