Artist's Survival Guide Workshop
Fractured Atlas is coming to Kansas City to help area artists focus on the "unsexy" side of their art. Learn about the services for artists offered through Fractured Atlas, as well as local, state, and national organizations. Fractured Atlas will answer questions about arts advocacy, civic engagement, fundraising, jobs in the arts, grant writing, social media, new technology, networking, emerging arts leadership, serving on a Board of Directors and more. So, come prepared with your questions!
