Artist Survival Kit: What Works/What Doesn’t

Artists, just like traditional small business owners, have to wear many hats—creator, fabricator, accountant, marketer, technologist, and more. And, just like traditional small business owners, artists can find this to be a daunting task.

How do some artists make the leap to sustainable and profitable artistic practices? Through their work with over 300 artists (from musicians, to writers, to painters, to filmmakers) staff of the groundbreaking Artist INC program have identified the common behaviors of successful artist entrepreneurs.

In this workshop we’ll share those behaviors and leave you ready to apply them to your own art practice. The workshop includes discussion of:

-Portfolio careers
-Goal setting and planning
-Communications strategy
-Financial planning

Date: Saturday, October 3, 2015
Time: 2:00 – 4:00PM
Venue: Thomas K McKeon Center for Creativity, TCC, 910 S Boston Ave, Tulsa, 74119
