The Self Employment in the Arts Conference this year will be held on Feb 29th – March 1st at the Hilton Hotel in Lisle, IL. While SEA offers some one day regional conferences around the United States, this one, which is always held in Illinois, is by far the largest.
SEA’s mission is to provide educational resources to aspiring artists to gain the entrepreneurial knowledge and skills needed to establish and maintain a career as an independent artist.
Focused on the business of art, SEA was created with the idea that more artists will succeed if they have business skills, knowledge, resources, and contacts. All SEA conferences are artist-led. This year I will be part of SEA as a presenter.
SEA is for college students, serious high school students, artists, and educators. Mark your calendars and sign up to attend. Scholarships are still available.
