Last weekend over 300 people attended DIY DAYS Philadelphia. The event was our largest to date. Over 40 speakers and 22 sessions provided insight into how those working in film, games, software, music and design can fund, create, distribute and sustain from their creative efforts.
We’re currently looking for suggestions for speakers, subjects, and locations for our next DIY DAYS event targeted for later this fall. Also a special thanks to all our volunteers who help to make DIY DAYS a reality and keep entry to the event FREE. If you’re interested in volunteering please let us know – work [@] workbookproject dot com
Over the next week or so we’ll be releasing all the video that was captured at the event. Feel free to embed and spread it’s all released as open media.
The following are the first two sessions from the day.

And how can we make a living telling stories in a world where everyone now has a story to tell, and a means of telling it?
