…brought to you by SONY and SONY ALPHA FEMALE.

Beginning in 2015, and each year since, I’ve hosted the Promoting Passion convention – a celebration of community and creativity, of inspiration and how to act on that inspiration. An un-convention, a weird gathering of like-minded Creatives. It is beautiful.

This year, instead of hosting the big annual convention, I wanted to make the event more accessible to more people. So, I’m going on the road!

This year I present the Promoting Passion Tour,
a 10-city celebration of creativity and inspiration.

This year, I hope to see more people than ever. With a price tag of $50 thanks to incredible sponsorship by Sony and Sony Alpha Female, I’m able to offer the most accessible event I’ve ever put on.

This is your invitation to invest in your creativity
and push yourself to a new level of inspiration.
