A Sustainable Creative Life: Relationships and Ecosystems


In this two-part workshop, Sharon Louden will offer visual artists strategies for building a sustainable career and creative life. Over two sessions, Sharon will outline basics of artist communications and tools to strengthen professional networks and grow relationships into communities. The workshop series is specifically designed to empower artists, demonstrate pragmatic approaches to sustaining a creative life, and demystify the “artworld.” Louden will share the expertise she has gained through collaborations and conversations with gallery owners, museum professionals, critics, curators, nonprofits, residencies, academics and others in different art communities.
