General Session

[Main Stage]

We are all on these unique journey as creative, as artist, as musicians, as thinkers. But where does it all lead us, what’s the point. Recently exploring the idea that artist are business people. This is not a new idea, it is just what it is. Yet the more I learn about art and the art world the more I'm exposed to a system that has created a facade around what it really is..... We lose something here by not divorcing ourselves from this idea.

I'd like to talk about a continuation of where my art has brought me today, some of the questions and issues that have come my way. We are in a place where we are seeing new models being created and some of the power being shifted, but we need to help this along and create a future where artist have more say, freedom and power.
