How can artists be forward-looking and build continuity and resilience into their business practices, professional relationships, and artistic development? This sequential workshop series will cover three important areas of business practice that have taken on greater urgency for many artists in the wake of Superstorm Sandy: Record Keeping / Archiving, Insurance, and Legal Issues.

The series is free, but space is limited and registration is required for each workshop on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information, please visit Workshops & Talks.

Space for Art & Resilience is provided by Convene.
