I was a speaker at this year’s Self Employment in the Arts Conference.
It was great meeting all the students and people that are just starting their businesses. I’ve always believed in having a strong educational foundation for people who want to be working artists. Sure you need to learn your craft, but you need to take some business classes too!
One of the best parts was talking with the other presenters during the breaks. It’s not often that you run into a talented group of people from such varied disciplines and backgrounds. I’m glad I was invited to participate, and I hope I get to help out again at a future event. Here is the link to the SEA. You should see if one is happening in your area. They also have some helpful resources on their website
