About Us

Picture The Possibilities. Picture It. Create It.

Picture The Possibilities (PTP) empowers global youth with the tools, confidence and inspiration to form and create their dreams from art to science--driving an optimal futureā€¦for all of us. PTP provides youth with the following opportunities and creative power:

  • The 7 Powers Youth Workshop provides global, ongoing access to PTP curriculum, activities, and opportunities. Access is free.
  • In PTP City Sessions (across the globe) youth experience the 7 Powers of Creating program that teaches them how to create anything from art to science. They practice this power by making films (with mentors) on content vital to global youth. Seeing how to bring a picture from nothing into reality, they can then apply this creative process to other areas of their lives and dreams. PTP also creates personal profiles on each participant sharing their stories and dreams with the world.
  • The PTP Channel and PTP Site provide youth access to the PTP Show, youth movies and profiles, plus the 7 Powers Of Creating videos and book.
  • PTP Annual Summits: Creativity is equally important to innovators and scientists as it is to artists. At PTP Summit Silicon Valley, global youth connect with luminaries to share their creations and empower each other and our future. The PTP Summit, occurring during the Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival, celebrates and fosters the creative force of science, technology and art. PTP youth and luminaries picture possibilities then set forward to create them.
