Empower, Educate, Create Stream-a-thon | Dec. 1-9, 2020

The Center for Creative Entrepreneurship is producing an unscripted and inspirational “Nine Days of Giving” Stream-A-Thon, to show the world the talent Chicago has to offer and the education and resources we provide to expand and grow our creative economy. This is a virtual salon-style gathering of experts and artists, patrons and fans coming together to celebrate and enrich the culture of creativity. We have a diverse array of leaders of industry like the owner of Cinespace, Alex Pissios, influential institutions like the Illinois Film Office and its director, Peter Hawley, thought leaders like fashion icon and published author Marcellas Reynolds, and celebrity stars like Hill Harper, who will host, moderate, and participate every night. Our lineup of guest speakers will demonstrate CCE’s commitment to excellence at all levels in the education of the nine sectors(Music, Film/Video, Dance, Theater, Fashion, Visual Arts/Design, Media, Sports, Culinary).

With your support, you will help us to empower entrepreneurs to grow their business in the creative sector.

Days 1-8 are FREE with a suggested donation of $50.

Day 9 Finale is a ticketed event.
