The Artist’s Survival Guide

Friday, October 14, 2011 11:30 am - 1:00 pm 
In-person | Atlanta, GA

Learn about resources to help with the business side of art.

This event is part of our Funding for Arts Month.

Adam Natale of Fractured Atlas will provide artists, arts organizations, and other creative professionals information about key services, programs, and resources that can help them with the business side of their art - the ‘unsexy’ side that artists generally do not like thinking about. First, the services offered through Fractured Atlas, a national, nonprofit arts service organization with over 18,000 members across the country will be discussed. Fractured Atlas offers services that deal with fundraising, education/professional development, insurance, and more.

Next, the services of 10-20 other local, state, and national organizations that offer resources for artists and organizations will be covered. In addition, participants are encouraged to bring questions about a wide variety of topics, including: arts advocacy/civic engagement, fundraising; jobs in the arts and in arts administration; tips on grant writing; social media/new technology, networking, young/emerging arts leaders and how they can advance their careers, general career and resume guidance, and serving on a board of directors.
