Meeting Artists' Needs is a series of professional development seminars and critical discourse panels and discussions that provide emerging professional artists and arts workers of all ages with a set of durable arts management skills as well as insight into pressing topics in the field. We believe that artists and arts workers are entrepreneurs and an essential part of our country's culture and economy. Meeting Artists' Needs aims to equip artists and arts workers with the skills they need—including networking and marketing, financial and estate planning, and critical discourse on topics affecting the art world today—so they can effectively manage a successful career in the arts.
