Motivarti began as a small partnership with a simple objective–to help bridge the gap between artists and their goals. We wanted to create an organization that could provide opportunities and preparation through classes, workshops, and our mentorship program for those willing to pursue their dreams. We believe, as strongly now as we did then, in helping others make their own luck happen.
Today, our organization is composed of a small team of three dedicated women–Laura West, Jessie Greenberg, and myself (Jackie Huang)–who run Motivarti in addition to sustaining full-time careers. None of what I do could be done without the support of these two extraordinary ladies.
All of us have contributed our time and energy to Motivarti because we believe in the purpose of helping others help themselves. However, as each of us have continued to grow in our own lives and careers, we’ve come to the difficult conclusion that we will not have the ability to dedicate the appropriate amount of time needed to run our organization at the standard we believe it deserves beyond 2016.
For the last four and a half years, it has been our pleasure to run Motivarti. We have been proud to serve the artistic community and we look forward to serving it for one more year.
We will have a table during this year’s CTN’s Animation Expo, so please feel free to stop by with any questions.
