Just got the word on yet another thing I had recently applied for, and the verdict was positive. I think it should be pretty fun and informative. The email said that “the application process was competitive this year” which I assume means that there a lot of applicants. Artist Trust is a pretty awesome organization in Seattle that supports Washington State artists. Many of the past shows I’ve participated in are things I found out about from researching on their website.
Anyhow, there will be sixteen of us participating in 54 hours of training over seven weekends. I’m excited! Description below:
The EDGE Program offers artists a comprehensive survey of professional practices through a hands-on, interactive curriculum that includes instruction by professionals in the field, as well as specialized presentations, panel discussions and assignments. The goals of the EDGE Program are to provide artists with the relevant and necessary entrepreneurial skills for achieving their personal career goals and to build community by supporting peer support and exchange.
