Join us for a conversation on how to organize your creative practice and ways to make an impact in your communities (near and far) with your art practice. This session is for all types of art makers and those in all stages of their careers–from emerging to established artists.
- Documentation: What is worth documenting and saving when it comes to our artworks and process? How do you want your art and your legacy to be recognized and remembered?
- Organization: Save time for what you love to do -- being in your studio -- with easy to execute streamlining strategies for your artworks, contacts, sales, and more.
- Promotion: Ways to easily share your artworks in a professional manner to clients, galleries and curators.
- Connections: Tips for relationship building and authentic engagement with new audiences including advocacy and volunteerism.
- Legacy planning: It's never too early to think about your legacy. And you don't have to show at the MET to make an impact -- either local in Denver or beyond.
Bio: Elysian McNiff Koglmeier is Head of Growth for Artwork Archive, an online art inventory management system for artists, collectors and organizations.
Growing up with a father as an art therapist and a mother who dedicated her career to art education, Elysian has always been passionate about the creative process and the importance of empowering artists and cultural institutions. She has pursued this passion both in the public and private sector. She started her career in museums (Middlebury College Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), ran New England Foundation for the Arts' public art program, served as curator for Brown University and RISD, and contributed to publications such as Art New England, Art Business News, and Public Art Review. A move out west brought her to Craftsy (now Bluprint) in Denver where she produced online art classes and managed partnerships for a startup that created online educational opportunities for enthusiastic makers.
She received her BA in History from Middlebury College and her MA in Public Humanities from Brown University.
Tools for the Creative Life is a workshop series aimed at providing creatives with connection, new skills, inspirational capital and tools to craft a healthy creative ecosystem. Presented in partnership by the RiNo Art District, Denver Public Library, Transforming Creatives, CBCA, and the Creative Integration Initiative.
