Call for Applications: Artists U/SC Intensive Weekend

The South Carolina Arts Commission’s Artists’ Ventures Initiative will host an Artists U/SC Intensive in downtown Charleston, May 8 – 9, 2015. Artist leader Andrew Simonet of Artists U/Philadelphia, along with South Carolina artist facilitators Karen Ann Myers, Michaela Pilar Brown, Tamara LaValla, and Rodney Lee Rogers, will outline approaches for reconnecting with our deep values, building community, and slaying the two demons of the artist’s life: time and money. The discussions will include: why artists are poor and why they shouldn’t be; tools artists have used to make things easier; and how to build a life that is balanced, productive and sustainable. Any South Carolina artist may apply to attend. Class size is limited to 30 artists. You must be able to attend both sessions: Friday, May 8th from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. and Saturday, May 9th from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. There is no charge for this workshop, but participants are responsible for their own lodging, meals and transportation expenses. Apply online by April 6.
