Remember the days before we were all connected via screens? We had hobbies and crafts and made things with our hands. And, we did it for one reason: the love of creating. Step Away from the Screen and Make Something, believes that human beings are creative by nature and have an innate desire to create. Step Away celebrates that in everything they do, and know that you celebrate that too. Which is exactly why they are coming to Alt Summit this summer. They are excited to meet you and hear your story, learn what you're making these days, and get to know how you balance your screen time with creating time. Get together with #StepAwayFromTheScreen to talk about how we create space in our lives.

Feel free to also reach out to them on Instagram: @stepawayfromthescreen, on Facebook at, as well as Pinterest and Twitter both under the username @StepAwayFTS.
