An Artist's Roadmap

MONDAY, APRIL 3RD, 6:30pm-8:30pm 
Join us at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center (35A Chambers Street).  Before artists can tackle marketing, grant writing or audience development, they have to strategize around how they will operate. An Artist’s Roadmap explores the many ways artists can create professional structures: fiscal sponsorship, collectives and co-creation models, the non-profit 501(c)3 model, and more. This event will feature an expert panel of dancers and choreographers as well as interactive exercises to build connections and articulate your own roadmap to success!

This event is FREE and open to the public. RSVP here.

I Hate Your Work

TUESDAY, MAY 16TH, 6:30pm-8:30pm 
Join us at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center (35A Chambers Street).  If “artistic merit” is a standard criterion on many submissions and applications, who decides what has artistic merit and what doesn’t? Because how we judge work is key to the decision-making process, and to artists’ success, we invite you to help build an ongoing conversation focusing on how we can examine the biases we all bring to judging artists’ work.

This event is FREE and open to the public. RSVP here.
