Free artist working groups start tomorrow
Artists U is starting SHIFT/South Carolina to get artists talking and working together in a time of crisis so they’re ready when the crisis is over.
Last week The Hub promoted the informational sessions. (Miss those? Catch up with a recorded version.) With the preliminary stuff completed, Artists U is diving in, and SHIFT/South Carolina starts tomorrow at noon with “Artists in a Time of Crisis.”
You can do SHIFT on your own. You can form a working group in your community. You can request to join an existing working group (there’s a place on the signup form for that.) However you choose to participate, Artists U does ask that you sign up for the community and dialogue
. There is no cost to participate
Registered participants get:
- access to 10 weekly Zoom workshops (live and recorded) on different topics
- the in-the-works SHIFT workbook
- regular updates on local and national resources for artists
“I know you will get a lot from our conversations and have ideas and resources to contribute,” Andrew Simonet of Artists U said. “And please spread the word. SHIFT is for all South Carolina artists, not just Artists U alums.”
All live sessions begin at noon on the following dates:
- April 8, 2020
- April 15, 2020
- April 22, 2020
- April 29, 2020
