The Creative LIAisons program was an amazing experience. Every single minute of the program was thoughtfully planned to provide value for attendees’ professional development. Spending a week learning from industry leaders was instrumental to my creative growth, as was sitting in on the final day of judging to observe statue discussions. Moving forward, my criteria for my own work will be elevated by the standards upheld by LIA. The program is an amazing way to invest in the future of creativity and I can’t wait to see what all of my fellow program attendees do next!
