Be A Visionary Initiative

Artway AllianceSince our inception, Visionary has been about giving back, to our communities, our industry, and our world. We’ve done this through supporting charitable programs, mentoring aspiring creators, and teaching children and youth. Now, Visionary will begin grouping these efforts and outreach collectively under our “Be a Visionary” Banner, an initiative about looking ahead and working for a better future, for all of us.

Visionary is proud to announce our first partner in this venture, Artway Alliance, a Maryland-based educational and interactive outreach that provides opportunities for children and youth to learn about the media arts, and encourages their own creativity and imagination. Artway Alliance founder Eric Suggs and our CCO C. Edward Sellner have been talking about upcoming events where Visionary will support this worthwhile cause, by leading workshops and helping promote events. Our first joint venture will be Columbia Comic Con, at the end of July! Find out more about the Alliance at their site!
