FREE to SC Artists: Artists U/SC Intensive Weekend, May 8 & 9, 2015, Charleston, SC

Apply to attend the
Artists U/SC Intensive weekend
Application due April 6

On May 8 - 10, 2015, the South Carolina Arts Commission's Artists' Ventures Initiative will host the Artists U/SC Intensive in downtown Charleston, S.C. at the Simons Center at the College of Charleston (54 St. Philip Street, Charleston, SC 29401).

Drawing on his work with Artists U/Philadelphia, artist leader Andrew Simonet, along with Karen Ann Myers, Michaela Pilar Brown, Tamara LaValla, and Rodney Lee Rogers, will outline approaches for reconnecting with our deep values, building community, and slaying the two demons of the artist's life: time and money.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Why artists are poor and why they shouldn't be

  • Tools artists have used to make things easier

  • How to build a life that is balanced, productive and sustainable

Any South Carolina artist may apply to attend. There is no cost to attend. Yes, the workshop is FREE! Class size is limited to 30 artists.

Make the most out of this incredible weekend of free assistance and apply today!
