"This Is a Real Job: Insights Into Arts Work," by Danielle Dresden & Donna Peckett. A ShopTalk event.
Although it’s common to talk about a “work of art,” we seldom discuss the “work” of being an artist and making art. More than 43,000 Wisconsin residents are employed in arts-related businesses and the non-profit arts sector contributes approximately $418 million to the state economy. So why isn’t working in the arts considered a “real job?” This session will explore the difference between the myth and the reality of what it means to be a working artist. Donna and Danielle will offer this presentation as a duo, mixing humorous dialogue and rhythm dance with their personal backstage stories to involve audiences in a conversation about how the arts contribute to making a living and making a life in Wisconsin.
