Our Artists in Action Monthly series teaches artists and creatives how to tackle the business side of making a living doing what you love. This session answers the question, “How do you find your place in the art world ecosystem?” Famously, artists don’t have clearly defined career paths, like doctors, lawyers, and tradespeople. So, what are your options, how do you get there, where are the available resources to help you find your way?
This webinar will:
- Give you a broad picture of various jobs and roles in the art world
- Help you define your goals as a way to focus your energy on your career
- Identify sometimes little known or understood sources of support for artists
- Leverage your peer group and mentors for guidance and assistance
