Description

This Professional Developement workshop will explore alternative funding strategies for visual artists.

PANELISTS:


Lisa Burger (President & Executive Director of Independent Arts & Media)

Amy Kweskin (Consultant and Coach at ArtSightful )

Ron Moultrie Saunders ( Artist and SFAC Grant Awardee)


MODERATOR:

Justin Hoover (Co-Founder and Principal of Collective Action Studio)
