2018 ATLAS Workshop: Navigating Your Life as an Artist with Valerie Weak

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?
