Conversation #5: The Measuring Stick

How does it all add up? Evaluation is an important aspect of any social practice. Not only does it provide valuable feedback for any artist wishing to hone their craft, it is also a necessary part of funding proposals and reporting. To conclude the series, this conversation will introduce program evaluation and its many functions in creating meaningful connection between artists and their audiences. Real world examples will highlight how easy it can be to collect qualitative and quantitative information.

Conversation #4: Put Money Where Your Art Is

How do we make it sustainable (i.e. “get paid”)? The core purpose of creative placemaking is nothing new. However, new funding sources are increasingly becoming available, providing critical support to placemaking efforts. From grants to crowdfunding, and through private and public partnerships, artists will learn about these funding opportunities and what makes for compelling proposals.

A benefit of socially engaging art is that it often takes place in unexpected, publicly ­accessible spaces. For example, by bringing art to community gardens, parks and public plazas, we create connection among neighbors and more vibrant neighborhoods. This conversation will uncover the plethora of community spaces and resources available to artists, while also addressing site ­specific work and contextual considerations.

What is ‘creative placemaking’? The term has emerged from the field of community planning and development to describe how arts and culture play a vital role in shaping community places. The series begins by establishing some common language and definition around the term ‘creative placemaking’. We will discuss the concept, its importance to artists and communities, and review examples.

Class size limited to 15 participants.


Stakeholders PFS: Artists Edition is an experiential financial education and professional development series. The series is created around the concept of artists as entrepreneurs. From that perspective, the workshops are crafted to equip artists with practical knowledge and skills advancing their level of personal financial literacy and establishing a proper business foundation for their studio practice.

This two-session event is designed to provide practical insights to practicing artists from all disciplines and of all levels of financial experience. More experienced participants will benefit from the tax, business, and estate planning discussion. Lesser experienced participants will find a comfortable on-ramp to financial education issues and a thorough grounding in personal finance “best practices.”


Session 1 – “A Running Start” 

Tuesday, March 15th, 6:30-8:30pm

This participatory workshop provides a meaningful introduction to the financial planning process. We’ll review a framework for organizing your personal finances while moving deeper into discussions of cash flow management, credit management and income taxation. This session is designed to:

  • Draw out your individual financial concerns (with due regard for privacy!)
  • Provide practical guidance and eye-opening insights into “best practices” of personal financial management.
  • Lay the groundwork for more detailed analyses, discussion of advanced topics and review of strategic business considerations.

Session 2 – “Pulling it All Together: Your household, your art practice and your business” 

Saturday, March 19th, Noon – 4:00pm

This four-hour session begins by separating personal finances from those of your art practice. We’ll discuss how and why to approach your creative enterprise as a business along with the corporate and tax implications of doing so. Key aspects of retirement planning and use of trusts will be highlighted. Issues we’ll review include: 

  • LLC formation; 
  • bookkeeping; 
  • deductible expenses; and 
  • estate planning.

Ample time will be set aside for questions and answers.


The presenter, Darwin F. Brown, J.D. is a wealth strategist and brings more than a decade’s worth of experience in financial planning, estate planning and portfolio management. Mr. Brown specializes in taxation and strategic wealth planning for owners of closely-held companies.

Stakeholders PFS:  Artists Edition is an experiential financial education and professional development series.  The series is created around the concept of artists as entrepreneurs.  From that perspective, the curriculum, workshops and individual presentations are crafted to equip artists with practical knowledge and skills advancing their level of personal financial literacy and establishing a proper business foundation for their studio practice.

WORKSHOP #1
In this active participation workshop, we’ll develop a framework you can immediately use to organize your personal finances. Our goal is to consider “best practices” in personal financial management while outlining an approach for creating a uniquely tailored plan in support of your studio practice.  In the context of your individual circumstance, we’ll consider:

  • How to leverage your positive emotions for financial gain;
  • An approach to alleviating problems of “lumpy” cashflow;
  • Methods of enhancing your credit profile;
  • Why the income tax system should be embraced (it can help you!);
  • Estate planning, charity and legacy objectives (even before your works trade at auction.)

Stakeholders workshops provide transformative experiences enabling participating artists to develop a uniquely tailored framework for their personal finances, business affairs and long term estate needs. Workshop #1 serves as an overview and introduction to the concepts and topics that will be explored in depth throughout the series in March, 2016. Stay tuned for future announcements!

Social Medium: Art-Making with Social Media

  • CUE Art Foundation

Tuesday, September 29, 6:30 - 8:00pm

How do artists use their social media accounts as art mediums and platforms through which to produce work? What alternative purposes, if any, might online galleries and “Instagram residencies” serve artists, particularly emerging artists? 

To consider these topics, join CUE for a conversation with Yulan Grant and Camilo Godoy, two multidisciplinary artists utilizing social media to create work that responds to contemporary discourse.

Bios:
Yulan Grant is a New York-based multidisciplinary artist from Kingston, Jamaica. A creative positioned between Caribbean and American culture, her work interrogates ideas of identity, notions of power, perceived histories, and the entanglements that happen within these topics. Grant is interested in the role that new media plays in artistic practices and the dialogue they hope to create.

Camilo Godoy was born in Bogotá, Colombia and currently lives in New York. He received a BFA from Parsons The New School for Design in 2012 and a BA from Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts in 2013. Utilizing a multidisciplinary art practice, his work is concerned with examining the construction of political and social meanings. Godoy was a 2012-2013 Queer Art Mentorship fellow; a 2014 EMERGENYC fellow at The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics at NYU; a 2014-2015 Keyholder Resident at the Lower East Side Printshop; and is currently a 2015 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence. Godoy’s work has been presented at venues such as La Mama Galleria, New York; Queens Museum, New York; Donaufestival, Krems; and Mousonturm, Frankfurt, among others.

FOOD FIGHTERS EXHIBITION

  • CUE Art Foundation

CUE is proud to host the Food Fighters Exhibition in the CUE Project Space. 

Food Fighters was a six-week pilot program for teen artists. They learned about food justice as it relates to income inequality and created new artwork on the topic. 

In July, the students began internships at three different food justice organizations in New York City—Drive Change, Mt. Sinai Health, and Harlem Grown—contributing a minimum of eight hours per week. The students also met weekly at CUE Art Foundation where they shared their internship experiences, and heard from guest artists and activists. Drawing from these experiences, the students created the artwork installed here. Other works by the students are currently on view in the exhibition In Search of One City: Sensing (in)equality at The Old Stone House in Brooklyn.

Food Fighters was co-developed by the Artist Volunteer Center and With Food in Mind. The Artist Volunteer Center aims to get artists out of their studios to participate in volunteer projects that involve humanitarian work, in turn offering participating artists the resources and opportunities to help their artwork flourish. With Food in Mind develops art-based approaches to food education and food injustice, exploring the potential of visual art and artists to impart nutritional knowledge and to affect change in childhood obesity in low-income neighborhoods and communities of color.
