Info For Artists
Dear Artists, at this time, this page will be dedicated to providing resources for our community during this time of need. If you are looking for specific information regarding your residency, please visit our RAW Artists or AIRspace pages. If you have a resource that you would like to share on this page, please share it with email@example.com.
- Joe will be hosting a new online arts lab via Zoom where we will discuss grant writing, festival applications and fundraising. This will also be a place where we can check in with each other and hopefully feel a little less isolated.
- We have had three very successful meetings thus far and will post the next meeting times here soon. Stay tuned!
