Learn from the best at a special Lunch and Learn with local marketing and communications guru, Sue Edworthy. Sue has worked in the not-for-profit performing arts in various capacities for over fifteen years. Drawing from her expertise and experience as a respected and sought-after arts marketing professional, Sue will speak about how artists can position and promote their individual art practice, brand, or creative service; how to price their artwork or service; and how to use social media and digital technology effectively. This workshop is open to visual, media and performing artists in any stage of their career. A catered buffet lunch will be provided by JC’s Grill House. Registration for this event is required.
