The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a professional development seminar for artists and other creative people on Tuesday, March 21, from 5:30-7:00 PM at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. Join us as we welcome R.L. (Rachel) Gibson!
“Moving from an amateur/hobbyist to a full-time/professional creative can feel impossible, but your creativity is the key”, says Gibson. How do we take what YOU do and fit it into an existing market? From free-lance work to wholesale accounts, learning how to view what you do in a more abstract way can make the possibilities clearer. Learn the steps you can start making now! Highlights include how to:
– Secure your online brand
– Develop a product by determining your market
– Price your work (just a few pointers)
– Recognize your budget & find financial help
– Sell your work; and
– Keep that creative flame lit
The presentation is $7 for members of the Arts & Culture Alliance and $10 for non-members. Secure your spot at the workshop by making a payment via PayPal below or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
