Career Skills for Artists: Arts Symposium – Nov. 19 & 20

26 Oct

If you haven’t heard, the Arts Symposium is back and we’re here to bring you the the lowdown, as well as a few tips to keep in mind! Part of Art at Work Month, the two-day event is dedicated to providing local artists and arts organizations with nuts-and-bolts information in order to become and remain successful in the arts. We’ve got exciting conversations, workshops, and panels lined up to help you push your arts career to the next level. This year, we’ll have a keynote address by Gigi Rosenberg, author of The Artist’s Guide to Grant Writing. Get a taste of Gigi’s speaking style in this great video from her website:

Some of the other sessions we’ll be holding this year include Marketing with Social Media, Fund Your Projects: Grant Writing for the Visual, Literary and Performing Artist, Engaging with Youth in the Arts, and Public Art Perspectives.
