What Artists Say About the Workshop

“Our local art sphere is changing with these workshops. People are talking about things differently and feeling more empowered. The impact is deep.”
Visual artist

“I have been working full-time as a self-supporting artist for ten years, yet there was not a single idea or observation that arose today that did not make an impact on me. I have also sat through many, many strategic planning meetings, charrettes, and professional development seminars in different fields, and this by far was the most fruitful, efficient, and enjoyable. This weekend will not only make a difference in my artistic and professional life, but also in the creative life of my beloved city.”
Dance artist

“This intensive was exactly what I needed – concrete reminders that I use both sides of my brain; the guided direction to jump start my career goals that lay dormant; and defining motivation to move forward to accomplish those goals.”
