Emerging Artist Primer: Building a Foundation for Successful Touring
Session 1: Establishing Tour Readiness
Tuesday, August 24 at 1-3 PM CST
This two-hour session is artist-centered and will provide resources to establish your readiness to tour. The discussion will focus on evaluating the artist’s ability to tour, how to begin contacting and communicating with presenters, and understanding presenter expectations. Please note: this session is focused on career development, not necessarily navigating the virtual Conference.
All participants are highly encouraged to participate in the Arts Midwest 2021 Online Conference, September 17-22, following the first session.
Session 2: Continuing the Conversation
Thursday, October 7 at 11 AM-12 PM CST
This follow up 60-minute session will be an open Q&A format dedicated to continuing the conversation from the first session and helping you with next steps if you attended the online Conference.
