The Return of The CONS Project

Cons Project Logo large - The Return of The CONS Project

Converse has announced the return of the Cons Project, a series of global community workshops with a DIY focus built by experts in the worlds of skate, art and music to inspire creativity. Following the success of last year’s program, the growing initiative will now encompass a free, hands-on workshop series throughout six cities, as well as an expanded Cons Project digital community. This year’s Cons Project will run from December 2015 to May 2016, with live workshops slated to debut for the first time in Austin and Chicago, and return stops in Los Angeles, New York, Boston and Toronto over the next five months.

As a unique digital platform for interaction and inspiration among the skate and art communities, the online Cons Project community will serve as a DIY resource that will feature step-by-step video tutorials and original video content; profiles of Cons Project mentors and Cons Skate Team ambassadors; and an interactive, digital community zine that allows members to highlight and share their DIY and creative efforts.
