Creator Marketplace

The Creator Marketplace is the place to showcase your wares as a creator!  Each space will include one 6’ table, two chairs, and two badges.  Additional Creator Badges may be purchased at the reduced cost of $10 for the weekend.


    $50: early bird price ends 10/08/18

    $75: regular price ends 11/4/18, or until tables sell out



Are you a creator who wants to share your ideas and/or process with the community?  Sign up to become a Workshop Presenter!  Workshop Presenters will have a time slot of 1 hour and are expected to provide their own materials.

Workshop Presenter:

A Workshop Presenter is responsible for sharing some aspect of being a creator with the community!  Part of hosting a workshop often includes a hands-on session that will teach attendees something new.  This may involve creating something on the spot (for example: a drawing tutorial), which will allow attendees to actively participate in the workshop.


Are you interested in volunteering at Creator Owned Expo?  Volunteers are expected to work a minimum of 5 hours total.  Volunteers need not have prior experience, but are expected to have a positive, can-do attitude!  Duties may include helping set up events, assisting staff or creators, and generally being flexible during their shift.  Volunteers must also be 16 years or older at the time of application.
