The BizArt Conference, to explore the business of being an artist, will be March 25-26 at Edmonds Community College.
This year BizArt will offer more networking time to chat with peers, presenters and speakers, as well as short, one-to-one portfolio/work sample review meetings with professionals in the art business. General session panels will discuss the notion of adaptability in the face of new circumstances; creative thinkers who offer insight into the upside of change and the positive charge that comes from grabbing onto an opportunity, however it presents itself.
The keynote address will be "Don't Go Solo: How to Enlist a Village to Help Create and Promote Your Work" by Gigi Rosenberg, author of “Artists’ Guide to Grant Writing.” The theme of the conference is "The Alchemy of Adaptability."
