Together with Geni Lou, I have created a series of 4 panel discussions with an incredible line up of panellists, aiming to provide cross-sector insight to improve work practices in the Hip Hop dance community and beyond.
For the majority of freelance artists, creating work and sharing it is one thing, but adopting sustainable work practices, turning one-off projects into long-term endeavors, building networks with various collaborators, adapting to different media, staying true to one’s values and artistic identity through time, often proves to be just as challenging than creating work itself.
There may not be a set formula to success, but there is value in learning from experiences of successful practitioners from various disciplines. We encourage our audience to tune in, be ready to be inspired to work hard, but more importantly work smart.
The panel discussions will be hosted on zoom, are free of charge and include closed captioning. Book your free tickets now on Eventbrite
