The Approach: Building Community for a Sustainable Creative Life
Led by Sharon Louden

A Four-Part Online Workshop

In this four-part online workshop series on building a sustainable career and creative life, artist Sharon Louden will focus on leveraging artists’ inherent creativity, thinking outside the box about creating opportunities and building relationships. Louden will review relevant information and examples of artists building communities that help empower those willing to put in the work to turn generosity into opportunities.

Content will include:

  • Honing communication skills
  • Methodologies to follow when a new opportunity is identified
  • Approaching arts professionals without a referral
  • Best practices for building a community of artists

Louden will share the expertise she has gained through collaborations and conversations with gallery owners, museum professionals, critics, curators and others in different art communities. The workshop series is specifically designed to empower artists, demonstrate pragmatic approaches to sustaining a creative life, and build relationships into communities.

In addition, there will be multiple touch-points of correspondence between Sharon and participants throughout the four-week duration that will include extensive sharing of documents and answering of questions. At the conclusion of the series, Sharon will be made available for one-on-one consultations where she can answer questions specific to each artist’s situation.
