Hello Artists, Makers, Crafters, and Dreamers! Here is an audio file of my talk Me, Inc., Visualizing Your Creative Practice in Business Terms. This is the first presentation in my Arts and Entrepreneurship Talks. Please note, this is just me, alone in my dining room, practicing being comfortable in front of an audience. Well, that’s not exactly true. I had an audience of four of my daughter’s stuffed animals. They were exceptionally attentive, but a bit lackluster in follow-up questions and conversation! However, the real talk at Starfangled Press went well, with eleven participants and a great round of questions and answers at the end. Thanks to the great group of creative entrepreneurs who came out to learn and support me in my education!
Dear Worthwhile Studio Mate,
Hello! I would love to squeeze a little valuable information out of you to better serve your creative business needs, offer fun and exciting workshops, and find ways to support you in your creative journey. Please take a few minutes to answer these five questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
Starfangled Press invites visual artists to attend a talk with Joy Poe about building your business skills as an artist. Joy is an artist, and she is currently persuing her masters in Entrepreneurship at Western Carolina University. Her talk, Me, Incorporated will be held on Saturday, July 28th at 11am and is free and open to the public. Starfangled Press is located at 36 W. Jordan Street in downtown Brevard.
The intent of the talk is to help artists begin to see themselves as creative entrepreneurs. Joy will talk about setting goals, creating networks, and building an actionable plan to reach your goals. In addition, this is a great opportunity to meet local artists, arts-based business owners, and see a snapshot of the arts community in Brevard.
