The Well-fed Artist: Going Places
January 13, 2011

Announcing the next meeting of The Well-fed Artist, a Meetup group intended to subvert the idea that artists have to starve, to suffer for their art. Artists can and do live rich, full lives. How? What does it take? How can they provide nourishment for themselves and one another?

Hosted by coach and fiber artist Gika Rector, this Meetup group explores what it takes individually and as a community to be well-fed.

Date and time

Thursday, January 13, 2011
7–9 pm

Description

Each meeting of The Well-fed Artist will be loosely structured around a theme, and will also include time for individual reflection and conversation.

The next meeting is Going Places. Sometimes we wonder if we’re going anywhere at all. Sometimes we set out toward a destination and lose our way. Sometimes we sail along with the wind at our backs. What does it mean for the Well-fed Artist to go places? What can we do to have more fun along the way? As the new year begins, it’s a perfect time to look at the road ahead. Please join us.

Participants are invited to bring something to share—a snack, an idea, or a show-and-tell.
