Our Story
A community of visual storytellers advancing the rise of creative entrepreneurship through shared perspectives, projects and programming created for, and by, our members.

The Creator Class first launched in November 2014 by Free, a content studio and cultural incubator helping creators and companies create, learn, and grow together.

The collaborative social project intended to shine a light on a global shift in visual storytelling, enabling creatives to turn their passions into a lifestyle and a living. Since then, TCC has catalyzed millions of contributions on Instagram, brought together thousands at an array of events, and produced dozens of short films on YouTube and Vimeo. Our projects have taken us around the world from Toronto to Tofino, Brooklyn to Portugal, Art Basel to the Swiss Alps. And it doesn’t stop there – there are always new photo, video and experiential projects being announced on our site and socials.

The next chapter in our story is TCC Pro – a professional membership designed for those members of our community with advanced capabilities and needs. Selected applicants access a growing list of benefits, including:

TCC Pro is currently supported in Toronto, with expansion plans for 2018. In the meantime, we encourage you to apply regardless of your city as our expansion will be motivated by the needs of the community.

As the creator movement matures, so too do the needs of those who lead it. That said, feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions or feedback at collaborators@thisisfr.ee.

Looking forward,

Chris Unwin
Founder, Executive Director
