You love what you do. (Marketing yourself? Not so much.) Marketing your art business doesn’t have to be painful. And it shouldn’t cost a fortune. Launching a website, mastering search engine optimization (SEO), and creating content can feel like a part time job you just don’t have time for. Add domain registration, hosting, and plugins and it’s easier to put off marketing until tomorrow and get back to making art. But that doesn’t grow your business.
–> Know you need to market your business but you aren’t sure where to start?
–> Wish your website was helping new people find you, but don’t know where to spend your time—and money—to get results?
–> Feel overwhelmed by all of the options and choices, wishing someone could point you in the right direction?
You are not alone.
What if you could have a website you were in love with? What if the process could even be fun? Spoiler alert: It can. And I’d love to show you how.

The things we give our attention to are the things that will grow. Cultivation is choosing what we wish to see grow, and shifting our attention. In a time when we can no longer rely on past ways of getting things done, I work with groups to identify what is most most important, and what attention will encourage new ideas to thrive.
Together we can cultivate:
*Grant Proposals and Fundraising Plans
*Cultural self study within mostly white communities

Inspire to Change develops principles-driven approaches to learning, evaluation, and adaptation that are useful and meaningful in justice and equity work.
Inspire to Change helps people remove bias from their work and expand their ideas of validity, fidelity, accountability, and findings by including the arts, indigenous, and culturally specific ways of knowing and being into systemic change work. Andy and Nora also explore creative placekeeping (how communities imagine themselves) as a counterbalance to creative placemaking (arts-led gentrification), and the roles of love and spirituality in social change.
When the path forward is uncertain, our values and beliefs help us decide how to move forward with integrity and strength. At Inspire to Change we let our principles — values translated into actionable statements — guide us at the level of individuals and systems. We engage these principles — Be & Become, Remember & Create, Learn & Unlearn, Disrupt & Liberate — with our hearts, minds, bodies, and spirits.
