About LivingArts Workshops
LivingArts Workshops provide a new series of learning opportunities targeted to individual artists and administrators of emerging and small-scale arts organizations in the Hamilton region. These six workshops address knowledge gaps identified through LivingArts Hamilton consultations as those that most commonly impede artists' career growth - from financial management and business planning, to self-promotion and social media. Collectively, these low-cost sessions aim to equip arts workers with the knowledge to manage the many competing priorities of sustaining and promoting their work, develop stronger support networks, and improve the capacity of Hamilton’s grassroots arts community to sustain its creative momentum.
