Making Your Art, Making Your Life: Resources & Tools for Chester Artists

By CultureWorks (other events)

Tuesday, April 25 2017 6:00 PM 9:00 PM

Are you an artist in Chester looking to connect with other artists and resources?

Join us for an evening of discussion with representatives from Artists U, CultureWorks, Leeway Foundation, and Small But Mighty Arts. This session will be a chance for artists to not only access resources important to their work, but also build together, vision, and deepen their artistic lives and practice.

During the latter half of the session, folks will have the chance to meet one-on-one with representatives from each organization to discuss their work and any other questions they may have.

  • When: Tuesday, April 25th, 6-8pm

  • Where: MJ Freed Performing Arts Theater (515 Avenue of the States, Chester, PA)

Session is hosted by Boundaries and Bridges and is open to emerging and established artists, projects, and organizations. Light refreshments will be served.

This workshop is free, but space is limited so RSVP is required. American Sign Language and childcare are available with prior notice (by April 20) – There will be an option to request when reserving a ticket.
