The FORUM is Vanguard Culture’s new Professional Development series designed to support San Diego’s Creative Industries. Workshops with Creative Industry Leaders are designed to educate participants on the business behind their industry. While instructors will share their talents with you, these are not intended as hands-on workshops to teach you techniques of a specific craft. Instead, they are designed to offer you the tools, tips, and tricks to help you make a living doing what you love.
