WEBINAR: Make a Statement

March 11 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Your CV, resume, bio, and/or artist statement are the basis of your marketing materials, and you’ll need at least one (if not ALL) of them when you’re applying for jobs, client work, grants, or residencies. But what’s the difference between them, and how do you create each one effectively? In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

+ What each type of document is for
+ How to choose the right document for the outcome you want
+ How to write a compelling and informative bio and artist statement
+ What to do when writing is NOT your thing
+ Tips and tricks for making your CV and resume stand out from the crowd (and a bit about AI!)

Whether you’re a recent graduate, a seasoned professional, or somewhere in between, this webinar will help you create better marketing materials and get you that little step closer to your creative business and career goals.
