Our message is simple: Stories and entertainment are important and visual storytelling artists and filmmakers matter.
Storytelling artists and filmmakers contribute to the future of humanity and the world we live in. We love, laugh, cry and dream together through art, movies, books, and online media at any age. The future fo the fabric of our lives and the health of the world depend on the stories we tell today.
“Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by anyone who knows the secrets of making dreams come true.” ~Walt Disney
The stories we tell, and the art we create, help us understand our world and make connections to others. Our greatest natural resource is the imaginative minds of creatives of all ages. It’s difficult to imagine a world without the magic of visual storytelling artists and storytellers build a strong creative and imaginative society.
The CTN Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization is dedicated to celebrating and supporting visual storytellers of all ages, budgets, ethnicities and geographic locations. Doing foundation work is so rewarding and simply brings an unimaginable amount of joy to give back in this way.
