Join us March 3 – 5 for the 2014 ArtPlace America Grantee Summit!

The ArtPlace Grantee Summit provides a platform to engage in conversations about the “who” and “why,” and the “how” and “what for” of creative placemaking. During the Grantee Summit, attendees share their knowledge and best ideas for putting the arts at the center of a set of strategies to transform the character of communities.

event will also be accessible via webcast on HowlRound.TV, a global, commons-based peer produced; open access livestreaming and video archive project stewarded by HowlRound: A Center for the Theater Commons.

Attending the Summit via webcast offers an unprecedented opportunity to understand the range of work happening around creative placemaking across the country. By learning and sharing collective victories, challenges, and issues with a group of like-minded colleagues and peers, we grow knowledge and understanding of the field.

Conversations during the 2014 Grantee Summit include:

  • An introduction to and update about ArtPlace America’s evolution and vision for the future by new Executive Director Jamie Bennett;
  • Insight on creating a framework for a Creative Placemaking Commons by our colleagues at HowlRound;
  • A discussion on ways to strengthen the field and collaborate with government representatives;
  • Strategizing and idea sharing about measuring a project’s impact;
  • Exploring the critical connection between people and placemaking; and
  • Charting a path for the future of the field

Don’t miss out!

The complete Summit schedule is available on our website.

Creative Capital Professional Development Programs

Monday, February 24th, 2014

 

Creative Capital Professional Development Program
share on facebook tweet about this on twitterThe Professional Development Program (PDP) is dedicated to
helping artists in all disciplines build and sustain their creative practices.
PDP started 2014 off with a bang, presenting 11 workshops in 9 cities in January
and February alone. We’re also continuing to expand our slate of webinars to
make our content more accessible for all artists. Keep reading for a variety of
workshops and webinars designed to make this your most successful year yet!

Tonight, very special guest Brian Tate hosts
a brand-new webinar, The Seven Elements of Strategic Marketing. Tate is a marketing
strategist, musician, and culture creator. He is singer-songwriter of the band
Shrine for the Black Madonna and president of The Tate Group, a consulting firm.
He has developed marketing plans for Bedford-Stuyvesant, Broadway, Jamaica
Queens, Brooklyn NY, Washington DC, and numerous cultural initiatives. Also
coming soon, Stephanie Bleyer leads Artist-Community Engagement, Andrew Simonet explains Real-Life Budgeting and Eve Mosher teaches Social Media: How to Be Everywhere All the Time. Be
sure to check out the full list of upcoming webinars below, or visit our Online Calendar.

In other webinar news, we’re in the
midst of developing two new regularly offered webinars. Any of you who have
taken our Verbal Communications workshop know Kirby Tepper and his
ability to empower artists to speak with pride, be it at a lecture, a cocktail
party or in a boardroom. Soon, he’ll be offering a webinar teaching participants
how to negotiate with confidence. Also, the incredibly versatile Maxine Lapiduss
will be adapting her popular workshop Authentic Branding into webinar form.

In January, we began hosting a series of workshops in seven cities
nationwide underwritten by Tequila Herradura, a partnership we couldn’t be more excited
to continue. We’ve already hosted workshops in Chicago, New York, San Francisco,
Austin and Los Angeles; we’ll finish up in March in Atlanta and Miami. Hip-hop
artist Naledge, AKA Jabari Evans, who participated in our 3Arts Financial
Literacy Workshop in Chicago, wrote, “The all-day seminar and discussion was
uplifting, if not therapeutic, for attendees such as myself who almost never
have an open forum to discuss our financial struggles with those who can
empathize.” To read about these workshops, click here. Many thanks to Tequila Herradura for their
generosity in supporting artists’ professional development across the
country.

Some of you may be aware already of the passing of legendary NYC
gallerist Hudson of Feature Inc. We were fortunate to sit down and speak with
Hudson in January as part of our Conversations Inside webinar interview series.
In memory of Hudson, we’ve posted his interview to share with you here.

people talking icon PDP STORIES
Audrey Phillips
“Breeze” by Audrey
Phillips

“During the Creative Capital weekend
workshop, it became painfully obvious that I wasn’t comfortable talking about my
art. I have since pushed myself in this area by doing more artist talks at
galleries and have become very comfortable with this. I say that so easily, but
it’s been hard work. Those two-minute elevator speeches and the presentation we
were required to do will always be a great, great lesson for me. I delved deeper
into why I was creating the art, finding my authentic voice, not someone else’s
words. Now, I truly enjoy talking about my art and had an invigorating artist
talk at a recent solo exhibit.”
