Google For Creators Comes to Nashville on April 18

Event will Educate and Empower Creators Online

On April 18 Google/YouTube is returning to Nashville to hold their first “Google For Creators” workshop.

Attendees will learn powerful tools and techniques that artists can use to digitally create, expose, and promote their work. They will learn how to cultivate and engage audiences in digital media, and most importantly, have successful careers and make money. Top representatives from YouTube and Google will lead the event, which is part of Nashville-based FLO{thinkery}’s Unparalleled Thinking Series.
