The c3: Center for Conscious Creativity is a 501(c)(3) non profit arts, education, research, project development and presenting organization.  Since 2004 we have provided innovative artists, media makers, content creators, and futurists, platforms and resources to create diverse projects to explore how consciousness, creativity, storytelling and emerging technologies can build a brighter future.

History

The c3: Center for Conscious Creativity was officially founded in October of 2004.  Kate McCallum, Founder, and Philip Horvath, Co-Founder, met while attending the UPR University of Philosophical Research in Los Angeles in pursuit of Masters Degrees.  Kate in Consciousness Studies, and Philip in Transformational Psychology. Synchronistically, they were also both employed at Universal Studios at the time.  Upon sharing their mutual visions of their belief in the power of creativity, arts and media to transform, they teamed up to launch the c3.  

In 2009, the c3 partnered with The Millennium Project, a global futurist think tank to collaborate on STATE OF THE ARTS, an event featuring artists and creators working in emerging media tech for social impact.
