When an artist decides to pursue a professional career, a major change in perspective must happen, a change from a “hobby” mentality to a business model that serves their professional career goals. This raises many financial, technological, promotional and legal topics such as: Contracts? Social networking and websites? Intellectual property rights? Technology? Taxes? Privacy? Join this learning community of artists as Evergreen's Managing Director of Performing and Media Arts leads the class to identify and discuss the major issues that will confront an emerging artist in the coming years as each student creates his/her own personal career action plan as professional musicians, visual artists, actors, dancers, writers, photographers, or media artists.
