The Great RenAIssance ~ Moving From Fear to Opportunity

AI is here to stay. For me, it’s a scary place. But I’m ready to learn more about it so that I can move from a place of fear to a place of opportunity. As our featured speaker, Kyle Shannon, says, “It’s time to demystify AI. Let’s approach AI with curiosity instead of fear and base our opinions on experience rather than conjecture.”
During this 90-minute webinar, we’ll explore the world of Generative AI with creative innovator & entrepreneur, Kyle Shannon, as he unveils the transformative power of artificial intelligence for artists, performers, and creatives alike.

Join us on this journey from fear to excitement, as we uncover the immense creative and professional opportunities that Generative AI offers. Don’t miss this chance to expand your creative horizons and be part of the Great RenAIssance. Secure your spot in this groundbreaking webinar and unlock the full potential of Generative AI in your craft!
**A personal note from Rhonda: There has been lots and lots of discussion on social channels about the possibility of AI taking away some of our voiceover work. This is an important discussion, however, THIS webinar is designed to show you what kinds of AI tools are available and the generalities of how they work. Kyle will be sharing information about AI generated synthetic voices and videos so that you can see and hear what’s possible in todays landscape. This is an informational webinar, not a platform to hash everything out. Thanks for your understanding.
