Meeting Artists' Needs is an educational professional development series for artists of all ages and backgrounds. We believe that artists are entrepreneurs, an essential part of our country's culture and economy. Meeting Artists' Needs aims to equip artists with the skills they need—from networking and marketing to financial and estate planning—so they can effectively manage a successful career in the arts.
MAKE SOME PLACE
Conversations about people, practice, and "creative placemaking"
Wednesday evenings, September 14th through October 12th, 6-8:30pm
MAKE SOME PLACE is a series of interactive workshops that examine ‘creative placemaking’ as it relates to artists and their practice. By shedding light on the abundance of increasingly available resources and funding opportunities, the workshops are designed to empower artists as they find new ways of engaging communities by integrating arts and culture into community building initiatives. The series will feature moderators, artists, scholars and social entrepreneurs. Each speaker will be paired with an artist offering a more in depth dialogue. Together, they will provide insight into social practice work and how urban areas benefit from intentional inclusion of the arts and culture as a means to enriching the urban landscape. The audience will also be invited to participate in the conversation during each session for a truly immersive experience.
