Upcoming Trips, Workshops and Presentations

Mid-Fall Traveling Teacher! October/November always seems to bottleneck for me with my business and teaching at Morehead State (MIDTERMS, anyone?!?!). This year is more hectic than usual as I am presenting more in advance of the 2019 leap into full time consulting.

This week I leave for the Big Apple, NYC, thanks to the Great Meadows Foundation and their generous support of artists in Kentucky and S. Indiana through travel grants. I’ll be going there to see the Costume Institute @ the Met exhibition Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. If you are familiar with my artwork you’ll know why I am over the moon to see this show before it closes.

In mid-October I’m off to the University of Colorado-Boulder for the annual Society for Arts Entrepreneurship Education conference to do a hands-on presentation of my Entrepreneurial Mindset Training for Creatives. They’ve already given me a heads-up that I am a finalist for presentation award, so time to up my game!

Then, in early November in Floyd County, Kentucky, I will be presenting a day-long Artisan Entrepreneurship training for the Big Sandy Area Development Association, hosted by MACED out of Berea. Informational flyer is below for registration link and etc.

There’s more updating in November like the Kentucky Arts Council’s Creative Industry Summit, strategic planning retreats for local arts organizations and so forth. News about that and other things TBA. Happy fall, y’all!
