GBCA is pleased to announce a new seminar series for individual artists that we’ve developed in partnership with the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund.
Our aim is to provide a useful and thought-provoking series of seminars for individual artists. We hope in the end it will empower and enable artists to increase their capacity, allowing them to spend more time on their artwork. The cost is a nominal $30. Some scholarships will be available if cost is an issue.
All three seminars are Saturday mornings from 9am to noon, and will be held on the 8th Floor at 2 E. Read Street in Baltimore. Part 1 is October 1 and will feature a workshop from Liz Lerman about audience engagement, and another with Peter Davis about creating your brand. Part 2 is on November 12 and will feature a seminar with Jessica Lanzillotti about business models, taxes, and budgeting. Part 3 is on January 14, and will start with a panel called “Navigating the Baltimore Arts Ecosystem”, and close with a workshop from Kate Bladow about utilizing new and current technology to increase capacity.
Participants who attend all three workshops will be eligible to apply for small micro-grants ($500 – $1,000) to implement an idea or strategy inspired by the seminars. If you are interested in attending the seminars, please click here to send me an email. This seminar program is limited to artists working in the Greater Baltimore region. Please forward this information to any artists that may be interested.
Also, tickets are now available to be requested for Free Night of Theatre. Go to the Free Night Baltimore site to enter your name for tickets.
Until next week–
Buck Jabaily, Executive Director
