Artists Working in Community
Use your creative skills to address community issues and opportunities! Whether you are an artist who already works in community or who wants to start, this workshop will introduce you to methods to clarify your own goals, techniques to ensure successful outcomes for you and your community collaborators, and how to reach out to community organizations and businesses to expand your artistic practice and income sources.

This workshop will use resources from Springboard’s A Handbook for Artists Working in Community. Get the Handbook as a free download or buy a copy of the book.

This workshop is a part of Work of Art+, workshops and panels that complement the Work of Art: Business Skills for Artists series, whose curriculum is always available for free download. Or you can buy a copy of the book.
