An entrepreneurship learning center for creative rebels.
Hello artists, crafters, makers, and DIYers! Here at Creative Liberation Lab, we believe in the power of micro-enterprise as an avenue for social and economic empowerment. Our unique and innovative program empowers the creative types to grow their own sparks into their greatness by:
- discovering and reclaiming their own sparks, the life's vocation, mission, and purpose that propel a human being.
- redefining and reimagining their lives by examining and rewriting the stories they tell about themselves.
- assessing their own strengths, inner resources, and weaknesses.
- creating a simple, straight-forward, yet viable business plan.
- learning how to finance their new business with $25 to $250 in start-up expenses, even if they have little to no money and have no access to credit or banking.
- developing unique branding message and products that express who they are and plays on their own strengths.
- gaining confidence, dignity, and pride in themselves.
The Lab learning programs include:
- Small-group based entry-level workshops.
- Peer-based supportive community.
- Continuing mentorship and support.
- Opportunities for networking and collective promotions.
Creative Liberation Lab is ideal for independent artists, crafters, makers, and DIYers who would like to generate sustainable income from their creative talents. Additionally, our programs can benefit:
- Single parents who cannot afford childcare costs and full-time jobs.
- Those who cannot thrive or function in a corporate workplace environment because of disabilities, mental health, or any other reasons.
- Those who are often left out of the economic and job opportunities because of systemic social disadvantage such as past criminal histories, history of homelessness, ethnic background, limited formal education, gender, age, and/or sexual orientation.
- Those who are on fixed income and are interested in ways to supplement income (SSI recipients can engage in business and not lose benefits as long as their monthly gross earning remains under a certain limit).
- Those who are considering an exit from the corporate world.

Update regarding the fall term of Creative Liberation Lab learning program:
We are having some technical issues with delivering the course materials in such a way that we can have multiple pricing options. The LMS that we use only allows one price option per course offered, and the other option is to make duplicate courses. We hope to smooth out this kink as soon as possible, in addition to putting a final touch on the class materials. This, unfortunately, is making it no longer possible to offer the fall term class this month. We have no ETA on this, but one option is to start the term in November and run through just before the start of the holiday season.
We will be offering a discount for this term for this inconvenience and confusion.
Thanks for sticking together with us!
