Creative Clinics

Take Creative Control’s Creative Clinics convene entrepreneurs, creatives, innovators, attorneys, and policy experts. We host panels on issues ranging from online free expression to monetizing and protecting intellectual property. We also provide free onsite legal sessions and referrals to attendees. Our events bring together over 300 creators of color joined for policy discussions and 40 one-on-one free legal sessions.

Our clinics are an excellent way to build our network and mobilize the community.

A Conversation with Author Damon Young

Damon Young is the cofounder of VerySmartBrothas.com and one of the most read writers on race and culture at work today. His book, What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker, is a provocative and humorous memoir-in-essays that explores the ever-shifting definitions of what it means to be Black (and male) in America.

His work is a demonstration of how our intellectual property and creative works empower us reclaim our narratives. Come early for a complimentary copy of his book and a conversation on his creative process and his evolution as a creator.
