In this brief interactive workshop, hear about different artists’ careers in working with the community and practical ways to get started in those careers. Artists work with the community in a wide range of ways—from structured settings to artist-initiated projects. Artists working in these different community-based and educational settings will talk briefly about their experiences in lightning-quick panels, then speak in greater depth about practical steps for entering these specific practice areas. There will be time for Q & A.
