Co-Creative Sessions: Exploring the Industry Side of Art
September 7 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
This workshop will focus on how creatives can expose themselves to opportunities in the professional/ industry side of art. How their experiences as artists can help shape the way they think and promote their goals.
Through the eyes of Adam Mignanelli we will look at his experience in industry, the path he has carved for himself, his likes/dislikes…& where he sees the future!
