Artist Services

Ben Berkowitz (See Click Fix), Bert Bernardi (Pantochino Productions) and Jen Vickery (108 Monkeys) share their experiences of using crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and GoFundMe at our “Workin’ the Crowd” workshop in 2012.

The Arts Council staff consults with emerging and professional artists throughout the year. We help connect artists with performing opportunities, studio space, and other artists.

We also organize professional development workshops on topics such as social media, filing taxes, and how to market artwork.
