Event description: 

Artists are passionate catalysts for change, envisioning a world transformed for the better through the power of art. Yet, they often face a persistent struggle: the dream of art inspiring change versus the systemic barriers of scarcity of funding, resources, and support. This tension stifles their creative potential and their role in driving societal progress.

Our seminar seeks to ignite a conversation about the roadblocks artists encounter in bringing their visions to life and connecting with their audience. We’re set to break down these barriers, viewing them not as impenetrable walls but as challenges that can be overcome. Join us as we pave the way to dismantle the enduring myth of “the starving artist” and unlock new possibilities for artistic innovation and impact.
