ATLAS Workshop: Navigating Your Life as an Artist

Individual artists usually wear many “hats”: stage actor, director, teaching artist, voice-over artist….the list goes on and on. How can an artist establish a framework for themselves that allows them to search for work, negotiate agreements, complete the work effectively and balance their own individual needs? What kind of work should we be looking for? What’s a job, as opposed to a career, as opposed to a calling? And what tools might you need for each?

Valerie Weak is an actor and theatre educator with a 15 year history in the San Francisco Bay Area with performing and teaching credits at theaters throughout the region including: San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, Center REP, Word for Word, California Shakespeare Theater. Valerie also works on-camera, in voiceover, and print (including hand modeling), appearing in commercials, industrials, and independent films.

When not working, you can probably find her at a yoga class, riding her bike, or chopping up the produce she just bought at the farmers’ market.
