Working is a professional development series for artists, built to equip attendees with project management skills, industry specific knowledge and out-of-the-box tools to advance their careers. Each session focuses on a different aspect of the administrative side of being an artist. From project management to fundraising, compliance, and storytelling, we’ll talk about the business of being an artist. Join us every third Wednesday from January to May to learn and share with industry professionals and artists at all stages of their careers.

Check out these additional Working sessions…
How do you take an idea for a performance, a dance, an installation, into a practical and logistical realization? We will talk about timelining, building and resourcing a budget, and what it takes to bring your project to fruition.
Being an artist means running your own business. And being in business means having insurance and filing taxes. This session will look at the basics for being an artist in legal terms; fiscal management, tax compliance, and liability insurance.
From foundation grants to individual giving, we will dig into the various realities of fundraising, build the beginnings of a grants calendar and look at planning a crowdfunding campaign.
How do you tell the story of yourself as an artist? How do you highlight your practice, your projects, and your life in between. This session focuses on telling your story through contextual platforms that can frame your work.
