Event description

Description

You are an artist. And a neighbor.

An artist and...a spouse.

An artist and...a mentor.

An artist and... a beginner.

An artist and...you have a day job.


It can be pretty hard to figure out how your different roles can be companions instead of competitors.

Does one enhance the other?

How do you find balance?

How do you find community?

How do you get started?

How do you get better?


ARTIST AND is a place for artistic folks to meet online in a small group setting with two professional musicians who will lead conversations about all aspects of living the creative life. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions, share your thoughts, and benefit from the wisdom and experiences of like-minded friends.


Session 1: The Songwriting Life will focus on what it might look like for you to make space for writing music either for yourself or for others. Artist And is not only for musicians, but because we work in that space, we thought it would be a good place to start and a way to introduce ourselves to you.


We are Christa Wells & Nicole Witt. We are close friends & collaborators and yet we have different personalities, different musical backgrounds, and have practiced our art in very different settings. We have diverse backgrounds but a united heart for mentoring and encouraging others, which is why we want to build ARTIST AND together.

ARTIST AND is part workshop & part support group. One or both of us will be there to share some insights & tips, facilitate conversation and answer questions.

We don't pretend to have it all figured out. But we know firsthand that often the thing you need most is a safe place to ask and listen and be heard.

We'd love to spend some time with you & encourage you in your next steps. We'd love for you to find companions and feel less alone in your creative life.

We are both people who love making music so much that we’ve been willing to carve out space for it in the wee hours of the night, wake up early for it, leave dishes dirty for it, skip TV and sometimes lunch for it. We both have families. We both have had to learn to wear a business hat. We value community and church and friendship and family.

And we both understand that everything we do costs something and have learned a lot by trial and error.

We’ve achieved some of our goals and we still have a lot more we want to do before we’re done.

Artist And is one of those things. Come along!


90-minute sessions will be held once or twice per month, feature different topics and be led by one or both of us, and occasionally a guest.

Themes will be announced in advance and you can register for any session that suits your schedule and needs.

Everytime you attend one session, you will receive a coupon for $5 off your next. Your name will also be entered into a drawing for a 1-hour one-on-one session with either Nicole or Christa - one name will be drawn after every 3 sessions.

FAQs

Where will this group meet?

This is an online video conference, which means you will be able to see everyone on the call, and they will be able to see you. Don't worry! You don't need to dress up. We're casual.

Do make sure you have a computer or phone that is compatible and up-to-date with Google Hangouts, since that's the platform we'll be using. It may look scary at first, but we've used it in the past and found it to work well.

How do I access the meeting at the scheduled time?

We will send all group members instructions for entering the group gathering in advance of the meeting.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Unless a session is specifically stated to be aimed at younger artists, you must be 16+ to register and participate.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email taylor@christawellsmusic.com with any questions!

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Sure. We need to know in advance, though, so we can communicate meeting details to the actual attendee.

Can I update my registration information?

Yes.
