Here is how the production workshop is put together:
1. An organization or collective brings established, professional artists/scientists/scholars from multiple fields to mentor and coach early career professional-level talent.
2. Inventing Earth provides the workshop environment and the budding artists, technicians, and others looking for the opportunity to work with and learn from the veterans.
3. At the end of the workshop, the production company sponsors a live performance, display, or publication to showcase the completed work. After the workshop ends, the sponsor may choose to undertake a commercial endeavor based on workshop, and may offer professional positions to workshop participants.
