How do artists earn their living? How do they support their creative endeavors? Do they support themselves via their art alone, or augmented by other work?
In short: How do artists get by?
A group of artists are convening at Lesley University in Cambridge on Wednesday, June 4, 2014, 7 PM, to discuss these very questions. The event is free and open to all.
More about How We Get By:
A dozen invited artists will share information on their income sources, living costs, and how this affects their creative work. Representatives of artist coops and art organizations will also be on hand to put their two cents in. Members of the audience will be welcome to share their experiences as well, and add to the discussion on how we can all learn to get by better.
Artist-speakers will include:
Representatives from a number of arts organizations (such as the Somerville Arts Council) will be on hand to discuss their grants and their views on how artists can get by.
This event is put together by Matt Kaliner, Jason Pramas, and Tim Devin.
