Supporting Individual Artists Coffee Chat: Artist Portfolios
Recorded On: 11/04/2019
About this Conversation
Americans for the Arts is excited to bring you a monthly series of informal discussions about supporting individual artists. As part of Americans for the Arts ongoing program, Arts Administrators Essentials: Supporting Individual Artists, these monthly "Coffee Chats" are your opportunity to hear from individuals and organizations in the arts and culture field that support individual artists as part of their everyday work. Each month, we will bring you a new topic to support your work with artists. Our topic for this month will be about artist portfolios.
What do artists need to consider when building their portfolios?
Join Adia Morris Swanger, Professional Development and Operations Coordinator at Springboard for the Arts, as she discusses why artists need to have a portfolio, what should be included, and how artists should consider what they will include.
This project is supported in part by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
