Make A Living Making Art
“Make a Living Making Art” is a program designed by Rihkee to provide skill building opportunities for underrepresented artists. The aim is to provide FREE training on seven topics that are important for anyone working in the arts sector today such as: project development, new technology, artful equity, emotional intelligence, grants & funding, advocacy, and entrepreneurship. These trainings are useful for anyone who is an artist regardless of art discipline and anyone who uses art as a tool for social change in their communities.
