As The Children’s Art Carnival renews its role as a community hub for the arts, it continually updates its services for artists in to reflect their needs and aspirations in a changing Harlem cultural landscape. As a place for exploration and creativity, CAC has created a new track of arts service provision that places the individual artist at the center of its work. Our model is designed to support and nurture the development of emerging, mid-career, and established artists as key to developing its educational, outreach, and workshop offerings.
Establishing Your Artist Practice presents a series of professional development workshops aimed at providing information, skills, and technical resources to help artists in their efforts to establish a professional artist practice and how to better promote their work. Workshops in the past have focused on specific topics such as Marketing & Communications, Financial Literacy & Budgeting, and Health & Wellness.
