Statements on Fire

Tuesday Aug 8, 7–10pm
Hosted by Linda Ravenswood

Your Artist Statement / Mission Statement is a reflection of who you are and what drives you. But 200 words ? That’s some limiting BS. Or is it? Let’s find our audience, elevator pitches, utmost takes & give aways in this 3 hour workshop. You’ll be released with new and improved Hot Buttons of Purpose, and the punk ass attitude you need to weather rejects, gentle deflections, and other withering disinterest you might encounter on your way! Let’s do this together!
