Artists often have the difficult task of negotiating multiple identities and roles in the art world and beyond. Yes, we are artists, but we are also expected to be administrators, educators, activists, students, parents, and somehow support ourselves financially, socially, and intellectually.
How do we manage these intersecting identities? What is possible when imagining a layered practice? What are some ways that we can push back against reductive forces that would limit our potential? How can we train ourselves and major institutions to embrace plurality?
During this meeting, we will discuss making art, making money, and managing the time to do it all. We will also try to find those precious moments - when all of our practices seem to converge. Activities will span mind-mapping, mantra-writing, and small group discussions.
This workshop is intended for any artist with questions about maintaining multiple practices and sustaining a fully realized artist/life.
