IAP: How to talk (and write about) your artistic practice and arts-based entrepreneurial projects

Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 4:00pm

Virtual Event

In this 4-week practical workshop taught by the staff of the Office of the Arts, you'll learn how to talk about, write about, and pitch artistic projects and ventures no matter your major or focus. You’ll develop an elevator pitch, artist and/or project statement, and learn how to write persuasively about your work for grant applications and awards or competitions, as well as learn best practices for developing a pitch deck or curating a portfolio. This series of linked workshops will also help prepare you to participate in MIT-specific arts opportunities, including funding from the Council for the Arts at MIT, Student Art Awards, Wiesner Art Gallery exhibitions, and the $15K Creative Arts Competition. 

Instructors: Andrea Volpe, Director, Council for the Arts at MIT, and Shannon Rose McAuliffe, Manager of Student Programs, Office of the Arts
