Many creative people have a hard time getting “out there” and being seen as the brilliant makers that we are. In this workshop, we’ll work through some of the roots of these false narratives that help keep us hidden, learn basic marketing and practical steps for growing a project and a practice (scheduling studio time, social media outreach, asking for help from your community and helping your community). Bring a notebook and something to write with. Snacks provided!
