*CANCELLED* CREATIVES OF COLOR COLLABORATIVE | SEPTEMBER
September 17 at 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Tomorrow’s meetup is CANCELLED. Everyone please focus on taking care of yourselves & your loved ones. ❤️
Want to ask for or offer help to those affected by the wildfires? Check out the Oregon Filmmaker Relief Facebook group—created by OMPA Board Member and Southern Oregonian Courtney Williams.
Are you a BIPOC* professional seeking community with other Oregon creatives? Join our next Creatives of Color Collaborative to network, give or get advice, and ask questions in a safe space. This month’s hosts are TZOM Films Co-Founder & Producer Maribel De Leon and Fort Ripper Producer/Director Karina Lomelin Ripper. We’ll be getting down to business! Come get advice on setting up a formal business, charging what you’re worth, landing commercial directing gigs, or anything else you want to bring to the group.
This is a free event. Additional contributions help continue events like these, provide wider access to membership, and support other equity work in our industry. Be sure to write “equity” in your donor note so we can allocate your donation directly to those efforts.
*Note: The virtual Creatives of Color Collaborative events are a safe, private space for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) to talk openly. While we appreciate allies, please respect this need.
