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 future. PTP provides youth with the following opportunities and creative power:
- In PTP City Sessions 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.
- PTP Annual Summits:Creativity is equally important to innovators and scientists as it is to artists. At PTP Summits, global youth connect with luminaries to share their films and stories and empower each other and our future. The PTP Summit celebrates and fosters the creative force of science, technology and art.
- PTP Virtual (hosted on the Creatics platform) provides global, ongoing experience of PTP 7 Powers of Creating curriculum, videos, book, activities, contests, community, and opportunities. Participation in PTP Introductory Activities wins youth admittance into the PTP Circle where members get exclusive invitations to monthly livestream presentations and community interactions on Gather.Town*, plus badges, workshops, summits, mentoring, forums, and fun celebrations of creativity. Access is free.
Through its work and growing legacy of empowerment, Cinequest was noticing that entrepreneurs, technologists, and artists shared a capacity to take a vision and make it real. Cinequest decided to add a division to help global youth, from all walks of life, picture a possibility and then create it. PTP Stage 1 focussed on in-person City Sessions and Annual Summits. Recently, a scalable virtual PTP experience has been designed and implemented on our sister online platform, Creatics. Please watch Story of Cinequest which includes what is PTP.
