Creative Capital 2012

Whether you know it or not, the moment you enter a room,
people form an opinion about you!

Only a fraction of your message is conveyed through the words you choose – what you wear, the energy and enthusiasm you convey, and how you engage others all affect your impact.

Learn how the world sees you.
Discover how you can benefit from this knowledge
Creating a strategy to more effectively present yourself; and your work
at this one-day Workshop/You Are Your Brand
Saturday September 28, 2013 at Young at Art Museum, 751 SW 121 st Avenue, Davie

Every day, corporations work exhaustively to calibrate and convey their brand. As artists we can do the same. We must know exactly who we are and what we want, and carefully sculpt the messages we send.

You Are Your Brand workshop will engage participants in a series of innovative exercises designed to help you discover what you project and how others perceive you. With this knowledge you can create a strategy to effectively present yourself and your work, and move confidently toward achieving your goals.

Twenty-four Broward County artists will be selected through a Call to Artist application process, to attend this one-day, dynamo You Are Your Brand workshop,
facilitated by Golden-Globe winner and Emmy-nominated TV writer and producer
Maxine Lapiduss.
Application Deadline: August 26, 2013

Free, Brief Information Sessions will be presented to assist you in preparing for this competitive review and panel selection process.
