Artists: Apply to attend the Artists U/SC Intensive weekend!

On November 15-17, 2013, the South Carolina Arts Commission’s Artists’ Ventures Initiative will host the Artists U/SC Intensive in downtown Charleston, S.C. (exact location TBA).

Drawing on his work with Artists U Philadelphia, artist leader Andrew Simonet will outline approaches for reconnecting with our deep values, building community, and slaying the two demons of the artist’s life: time and money. Topics to be discussed:

  • Why artists are poor and why they shouldn’t be
  • Tools artists have used to make things easier
  • How to build a life that is balanced, productive and sustainable

Artists U’s Charleston, S.C. leaders, Karen Ann Myers and Rodney Rogers, will join Andrew in leading workshops and exercises he has developed over eight years of working with artists nationally.

How to apply
