In a field that often reiles on non-sustainable sources of support and subsidy, artists and arts institutions often have complicated relationships with money (and even when there is money, the current system frequently pushes artists from creative spaces into supporting roles). Regardless of how much or how little money there is, all forms of support produce tendencies and behaviors that can fundamentally impact your values and the form and content of your art. The repercussions are often unpredictable, raising such questions as: Can artists support themselves while keeping true to their values? Can artists reconcile ideals of creative control and social justice with their participation in an exploitative capitalist system? Edgar Arceneaux will present his work with New Financial Architectures for Creative Communities (NFACC) and lead a workshop about various forms of support and resources, allowing you to explore which are in sync with your temperament and values and which inspire new ideas.
