YES Montreal Art Conference: job skills

Making a living as an artist isn't always easy.  While getting technical and creative training is important, business skills can also help. The Youth Employment Services 13th Annual Business Skills for Creative Souls Artists' Conference takes on that topic tomorrow. The workshops are billed as a "day of inspiration and information for artist-entrepreneurs" with speakers from multimedia company Moment Factory, musician David Usher, and singer-songwriter Jennifer Gasoi.
There is also a panel discussion on how artists can use their creativity and skills to be more visible.  On that panel is Montreal Gazette columnist, author and filmmaker Bill Brownstein, who spoke with Sonali Karnick about how to be more visible as an artist.
