Art as a Sustainable Practice: Creating sustainable artists livelihoods

 
August 12, 6:30-8 PM, 2021
 
 

Producing a successful creative career requires skill, determination and guts. In the best of times, it can be trying. In a global pandemic, it may feel out of reach. The Cultivation Of project can provide experimental tools and experiences to engage artists and creatives as we embark on our post-pandemic creative paths.

 

“The Tarot Cards of Your Creative Future,” is a tool and facilitated method that supports artists in a supportive and empathetic environment, mirroring where they are today, and mapping the directions they might be interested in pursuing tomorrow.

 

The process is approximately a 90 min facilitated experience via videoconferencing (due to the pandemic) and provides a safe and empathetic environment for you to consider your next steps.

 

Artists and creatives from all career levels, and all disciplines are welcome to participate.
