What is Creative Spark?
It is C&T Publishing’s online learning platform that offers Virtual LIVE Events and Evergreen Courses.

What are Creative Spark LIVE Events?
They are virtual events. As a keynote, you can present live demonstrations, lectures, PowerPoint presentations, or pre-recordings of techniques during the keynote, followed by some Q&A.

What makes Creative Spark events different from many out there?

  • the caliber of instructors
  • the number of instructors per event
  • the interactive and engaging quality: it's a meeting, not a webinar

2024 will be Creative Spark's third year offering LIVE events. The feedback from attendees has been off-the-charts positive, and they all want more live events. Creative Spark's events allow folks to choose which breakout room sessions to watch LIVE while being able to watch the other sessions’ recordings later. Recordings are not sold after the event date.
