RACC 2016 Artists Workshop Series

RACC is pleased to offer 11 Artist Professional Development Workshops from January to June in 2016. These workshops are led by experts in their field, and designed to give you the tools you’ll need to organize, maximize and prioritize your career as an artist. With topics ranging from grant writing to how to market yourself and your work, you’ll be sure to find a workshop that will fit your needs and your checkbook. Workshops are $30 each or a $7- $20 sliding scale.
 
The Regional Arts and Culture Council would like to thank our multiple workshop attendees with a special sign of our appreciation. All attendees that register for an accumulated total of 5 full price workshops (sliding scale panel discussions are excluded) will earn a code that will be good for one free workshop or panel. To receive the code please email the list of workshops you’ve registered for to Andre Middleton
 
New this year we will offer a multi-pack registration option. If you’d like to register for more than 1 $30.00 workshop at a time now you can. As always, we are offering an Early Bird special. All registrations for $30.00 workshops that occur prior to Jan 23 will receive a $5 discount.
 
Workshop dates, descriptions, presenters and locations are listed below. Registration opens December 1, 2015 for 2016 workshops series.
