TUESDAY, MAR 14 | 6:30 PM
WITH CLAIRE BARRERA (PDX)
My name is claire, and I am one of the organizers of Brown Girl Rise. I am also a choreographer currently creating a performance with 6 youth and adult dancers. I am offering a movement workshop to youth ages 12-25 where we will play with some of the themes and games of my upcoming project. No previous dance experience necessary, just a willingness to move your body!
MONEY MATTERS FOR ARTISTS
SATURDAY, MAY 20 | 10 AM – 1 PM
WITH DAVID THOMSON (NYC)
How much do you know about the real world? Things your parents didn’t teach you. This workshop will give you the basics to begin creating a financially sustainable life. We will cover the nuts & bolts of budgeting (personally and professionally), taxes, credit & debt and legacy. Alongside this we will discuss building a personal philosophy to help you define your own success. You will leave with resources for now and the future.
The materials and resources will be digitally shared and laptops are recommended for the workshop.
