Another week, another deliberation of drumbeat to which I march. Contemplation of value, expertise, how and where to grow. Community heard. Community found.
Creative development is subjective, yet paramount to philosophy, brand, effective expression, activism. Art is King appreciates the knowledge, support, resources and collaboration needed to maintain art as king.
Marinate in the experience below. Digest the knowledge. Find your community. Create and feed the people with it.
Art is King Panel Discussions 2014
The Importance of Creative Development
Host: DTM ‘Dan the Man’ Flores & Art is King
Panel: Ann Rowles, Nequa Gay & Hez Stalcup
261 Peters St, SW
Atlanta, Ga. 30313
FROM FIRST INDIVIDUAL INKLING TO INTIAL COMMUNITY COLLABORATION?
Hez Stalcup Get over the social phobia as most people want to support and a community is needed anyway to share resources, offer a sounding board and give support.
Ann Rowles She discovered the “Women’s Art Movement” and found her community, even learned more from that group than from earning her degree.
Nequa Gay As a natural recluse there is a knowledge that the community is harsh and it affects the bridge between the concepts “because other artists have opinions…”, but the harsher, real feedback honestly is needed.
PRIME FOCUSES FOR INTROVERTS & TO DEAL WITH THE FEEDBACK?
Hez Stalcup “Being an artist is not always obvious.”
Nequa Gay Finds it difficult to give away, sell or detach from her pieces.
Ann Rowles Sharpen skills via classes, workshops; it doesn’t have to be formal schooling.
Check out artisking.org for the full effect. You’ll find the audio, the launched podcast & information on past and upcoming Tuesday panels.
SAO was on the scene and trust when I say that focus was again provided. Reflection of varied steps applied to the week’s decisions. Diversity in genre, medium, experience and creative development allowed the panel to represent each attentive listener. Audience participation created a plethora of resources and guided directive through well-thought inquiry while the curator and host encompassed with empowerment and leadership. This panel reminding us to:
-Sharpen your craft. Take classes. Educate yourself on new skills. (A.R.)
-You just don’t have to be as others define you. (N.G.)
-“Don’t wait to be different.” (H.S.)
Tune into the artisking.org podcasts of each session. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, the next 6 weeks. INCLUDING TOMORROW!
Tomorrow you’re on the guest list to WONDERROOT for Art is King, non-profit organization, artists’ activists empowering the collective, building community and sharing. Dandacreativegenius asks us to ‘remember that art biz is a balance and there are groups and people that will help you handle it in a constructive way’. Such sage advice for The Coordination of COREYOgraffi and to sharpen SAO.
