This week we have been hosting our very first Small Creators Fest!!! In addition to launching the fabulous Vendor Hall, we’ve had two excellent events so far. On Tuesday, we hosted an interview and tea-making session with Katie from Nerdfelt, and we had a conversation with This Star Won’t Go Out on Wednesday about how to support their incredible charity, both of which are available to watch on Instagram.

Haven’t been able to participate yet? Fear not! We still have three more sessions, including:

Ethical Creation under Capitalism? | Thurs, 11/11 @ 8pm ET

Hear from panelists Elden Fragrances, Protego Foundation, Hashtag Ruthless Productions, and Fandemonium Design about being a small creator in a capitalist, algorithm-driven world and the reality of creating art inspired by problematic franchises.

Becoming a Creator & Building an Audience | Sat, 11/13 @ 2pm ET

Learn how Black Girls Create and Wizards in Space built their communities and got their start, and get their advice on how you can, too!

Creator Spotlight: 3DPrintingPressUSA | Sun, 11/14 @ 3pm ET

Join our live chat with 3DPrintingPressUSA to learn about how they create some of the coolest pieces for cosplay and beyond!

Don’t forget to visit our Vendor Hall to support all of our amazingly talented small creators this week!!! Because whether it’s a Bones or No Bones Day, you deserve to treat yourself.
