Creators Camp fireside

Creators Camp Fireside is a speakers series designed to bring America's young, emerging creators and innovators face-to-face with marketplace professionals. Fireside gives youth and their parents the opportunity to learn more about the unconventional and often unseen professions within the science, technology, engineering, arts and math disciplines.

Our goal is quite simple, and two-fold... To mitigate the fear that a parent experiences when they realize that their children are leaning toward a creative career, and to create a space where young innovators and creators can identify with potential career paths ...
— Vincent Hunt

Each Fireside event host one professional from the fields of: Science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). In an "interview style" format, Creators Camp Fireside Experience Engineers and Facilitators will direct a conversation that illuminates the day-to-day lives of the creative, innovative minds behind organizations like DreamWorks and Disney, and the trailblazing Entrepreneurs that are redefining the future of work. 

A lot of it has to do with context for young people... They don’t know how their love of video games, translates to the multi-billion dollar gaming industry... For parents, it’s all about gaining a better understanding of how the post-industrial economy differs from the industrial economy...
— Vincent Hunt
