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.
Join us for a public convening and discussion at CUE. The roundtable will bring together artists and representatives from various art and social service organizations to share approaches to building institutions that serve disabled audiences and artists who are often excluded from mainstream art resources.
Artist Carmen Papalia and curator Whitney Mashburn will lead a public workshop on the topic of Open Access – a relational model for accessibility that Papalia produced in 2015. This event is ideal for museum educators, teaching artists, and socially-engaged arts professionals interested in the intersection of visual arts and disability.
This event will convene a collection of New York-based artists and choreographers to discuss the importance of intersectionality in fostering a thriving, supportive, and accessible landscape for disability arts in New York City. Guest presenters to be announced.
