Artist INC Express, a career development program of Mid America Arts Alliance, has partnered with gallupARTS and New Mexico Arts to help artists of any discipline develop the building blocks for a thriving and enduring arts practice. The program will be held on June 8 from 10 am to 3 pm and on June 9 from 12 pm to 5 pm at the Octavia Fellin Public Library.

Led by a team of experienced, working artists, this nine-hour, hands-on workshop helps artists address specific needs and challenges that artists face throughout their careers. Through discussions, activities, and hands-on exercises, artist-facilitators, and a new network of peer artists, will help participating artists set goals for their practice, write about their work, and build a personal brand.

Artist INC Express is a slimmed down, yet still highly active, version of the popular eight-week Artist INC Live program, which has been completed by more than 2,000 artists since 2009. Artist INC Express explores those same core concepts of how to build a lasting arts practice in a shorter, more flexible format, to help reach a broader audience of artists.

The program is free and open to artists of all disciplines and skill levels.

Interested artists may register now at https://www.maaa.org/event/artist-inc-express new-mexico-gallup/. The registration deadline is 5 pm on June 6.
