Like many of you, in my career I wear three hats. First, I've worked in the performing arts for over thirty years. Second, I've taught arts administration classes for over ten years. Third, I'm a published mystery author.
Each of these hats had benefited from the the skills of understanding self promotion, networking, and preparing pitches and presentations that work. Many artists aren't taught these skills, which leaves them at a disadvantage.
The goal of Your Ladders is to help artists build ladders over business obstacles in their path.
Learning these skills are a critical step forward on your artistic path. They will be used throughout your career.
I've created three mini classes that will teach you these skills effectively, and through a lens that supports the artist. Why are these skills important?
So if you’re ready to finally do learn these skills while avoiding overwhelm
This class will help you build your self promotion efforts in a way that works for you, and your artistic goals.
What do you need to have in place for self promotion? What are the best practices you should employ to support your work?
The idea of networking can be daunting, especially if you are an introvert. Networking in the arts is about building community as well as letting folks know about your work. How do you do it well, and effectively?
This class will break down the steps to effectively network, building community while not burning bridges.
On your artistic path you are going to have countless opportunities to pitch yourself and your work. You may be invited to do a presentation at some point to support yourself, or support someone else.
Knowing how to pitch and present yourself are invaluable skills, no matter what path you are on. Are you prepared for these opportunities?
You're comfortable working on the artistic side of your life, but you're not sure how to move your career forward.
The thought of promoting yourself, networking, or doing a pitch makes your palms sweat and strikes fear in your gut.
You've missed opportunities by not being sure how to take advantage of them effectively.
You love your work, and want to build a network, a community, where you and your work have a place.
You're dreaming of bigger goals, but understand you need to take small steps to get where you want to go.
