The Professional Development Speaker Series @ Hamiltonian Gallery

Survival Guide for Artists and Arts Organizations
Tuesday, March 29th @ 7pm

Adam Natale, Director of Partnerships & Business Development at Fractured Atlas, will speak about key services, programs, and resources that can help artists with the business side of their art -- the "unsexy" side that artists generally do not like thinking about, but allow them to focus more easily on the creation of their art, while also maintaining the infrastructure of their "arts business."

To start, Adam will introduce the services offered through Fractured Atlas, a national, nonprofit arts organization that provides fundraising, education/professional development, insurance, and other services to both performing and visual artists.  Adam will then talk about other local, state and national organizations that offer similar resources on arts advocacy/civic engagement, fundraising, jobs in the arts and arts administration, tips on grantwriting, social media/new technology, networking, emerging arts leaders, and general career and resume guidance. We are looking forward to a lively Q & A!
