FREE Workshop for Youth Artists (Ages 13 to 29) — Supporting Emerging Artists

In Workshops on January 14, 2011 by danceumbrella

This session will include three main components. It will begin with a break down of grant opportunities available for artists and help you to determine what source of funding is right for you. The second component of the workshop will address fundraising strategies and alternative ways to make money to support your initiatives. The session will end with tips and tools that will help emerging artists to ask questions, examine contracts, and consider options when searching for a manager that best suits the needs/goals of the artist.
NOTE: This workshop is for new and emerging artists.
