They say: "Without art, there can be no movements. Yet, artists are often unrewarded for being the drivers of change, which has created a culture of unsustainable practices. In particular, being a Black/Brown artist who is along the trans and/or queer spectrum means that we are more at risk for being underpaid and undervalued for our brilliance. This workshop will make space for trans & queer artists of color to develop long-term strategies towards a life supported by their creative work. Participants of these sessions are artists and cultural producers of all disciplines who are ready to build a career from their practice. Part 1 (May 24) will focus on evaluating your financial needs and plans as an artist. Part 2 (May 31) will recharge your marketing needs and put your plan into action. This workshop will intentionally engage a framework of dismantling anti-Blackness, white supremacy, transphobia, and more as we imagine the role of TQPOC artists creating their own liberation. This workshop is part of Trans Arts Month, a month long series of performances and events celebrating the beauty and diversity of work by trans artists."
