Unfettering Artists' Productivity and Impact
Upcoming Workshops



Telling Your Story (LA)

Real, honest stories, told well, are like a super power we all have access to. Telling stories that bind us, that say "we are all in this together," helps us to inspire, heal, motivate, gain perspective, build community, and establish real connections with those far and wide.

Towards a Solidarity Economics Conduction System for Improvisers (Oakland)

A participatory workshop led by Marshall Trammell that invites attendees to critique Capitalism and its machinations through music and improvisation. No music experience necessary. Co-presented with Pro Arts Gallery & COMMONS.

Community Funding & Ongoing Income (LA)

Sales and grants aren't the only way an artist can make money. This workshop addresses the online tools available to artists to get money for their art, from Kickstarter to Patreon. Because these tools rely on people to power you and your work, you'll learn how to build your community in a way that creates a reciprocal relationship with the folks who like what you do.

Planning For Your Future as an Arts Worker (Pasadena)

Employment in an unconventional field like the arts can make planning for your future feel more challenging. As experienced financial planners, Moss Adams Wealth Advisors are no strangers to helping create a customized financial plan that fits each individual’s situation. During this 2-hour workshop, they will cover specific financial planning strategies for artists with unique cash flow and benefits.
