Cobbling Together an Existence as An Artist

Cobbling together an existence as an artist, especially in an expensive city like New York can be a daunting task!

Join us for a panel discussion with three artists working in varying mediums to discuss personal experiences in procuring funding and finding space for  your art practice. We'll sharing tips, tricks and strategies for your development as an artist, as well as grant research, writing, porfolios, and converting your talents into marketable skills. You are welcome to bring your artists statement, bio or CV, and together we will discuss what makes a successful application and how to best present yourself in order to successfully participate in the opportunities you are interested in. The resources we will talk about are all free and equal opportunity. Some will be local resources, and others on a global scale.
