Making The Table-Standing Up, Joining In, and Fueling Change in Our Communities

We can't stand on the sidelines. We need to take action. Now more than ever, community organizations must come together to make change possible. How do we do it? What tools can help us stand up, join in, and fuel positive change? The Cultural Alliance of York County, in partnership with York College of Pennsylvania, invite you to get the tools and connections you need at the Impact Conference-a three-day regional arts & culture conference on June 22-24, 2017 in downtown York. Each interactive workshop is made to give attendees the tools they need to face community issues and engage in tough conversations. Early-bird registration and scholarships available until 6/1. Join us, join in, let's go. #ImpactArtsCon17    [less-]

We need a new conversation.

Too many brilliant, mission-driven artists are exhausted, broke and overwhelmed. A constant sense of scarcity pits us against one another. And even those who find “success” struggle to build sustainable lives. How can we build balanced, productive, sustainable lives? In Artists U, facilitated by Andrew Simonet, we will share tools and principles artists have used to thrive. We will build a conversation, a realistic, un-complainy conversation that sees the challenges but also acknowledges that our skills are more than up to the task. We will do some specific, practical work (planning, finances) and some big picture thinking. And we will look at the specific challenges facing artists: the demands of creating and producing the work, funding cycles, and a supposedly embodied life that too often ends up in front of a laptop for eight hours. Artists will also meet monthly for five months to do the core practices of sustainability: planning, financial clarity, time management, and writing about our work. We’ll do this together, sharing tools and experiences in a community of inquiry, not competition.

community + clarity = power
