Upcoming Workshop for Creatives
Sharing Your Story
Virtual Workshop: Sharing Your Story (or How to Write and Talk about Your Work)
Date: November 10, 2022 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Artists are often asked to tell the story of their art and why it matters. Talking and writing about ourselves is a challenging but vital skill for artists, whether our goal is to sell online, via public art, street fairs or any level of gallery representation. How do we present who we are and what we do without being pompous, desperate or feeling like a fake? This presentation aims to put you on a path toward becoming comfortable sharing your story, whether in a personal or online conversation, in an artist statement, bio or resume, or in conversation with peers, other professionals or most importantly, with customers and community members. If you have questions about accessibility and need more information, please contact Chevi Chung (she/her) at firstname.lastname@example.org:email@example.com?subject=Question%3A%20Sharing%20Your%20Story.
