Create Good 2023

Strength To
Make Change

Strength, fortitude, stubbornness. Whatever you call it, we need it more now than ever to stay on the path to make change. 

April 26–28, 2023


This year at Create Good, we heard about creating stories, engaging our supporters, and believing in our damn selves.  This year was entirely a celebration of change makers and those who have been brave enough to create good. 

We can’t wait for the next one!

Fix Your Creative Review Process To Save Your Sanity

Based on her new book, “Kindly Review,” Dawn Crawford will introduce participants to a radical approach to addressing toxic feedback while helping them control their work processes. In this special session, learn about eight feedback styles, then get the tools you need to create a respectful, collaborative environment for creative critique. With the guidance of “Kindly Review,” you’ll take control of stressful work situations through an easy-to-implement process to make your workplace kinder. Every participant will get a copy of “Kindly Review” and handy worksheets to implement the Kind Review process with your team!
