DESCRIPTION
How can we live as artists while raising children? Led by choreographer Andrew Simonet, this 90-minute webinar looks at the challenges and rewards of parenting as artists. Based on a national survey and a series of in-depth interviews and workshops, we will share principles and tools that help artist parents thrive. Open to artists with kids and artists thinking about raising kids, the webinar takes a realistic and positive look at the artist parent life. Led by Andrew Simonet, choreographer and father of two, who says: “This is the webinar I wish I had taken years ago.”

ABOUT ANDREW SIMONET
Andrew Simonet was, from 1993 to 2013, a founding co-director and choreographer of Philadelphia's Headlong Dance Theater, along with his collaborators Amy Smith and David Brick. Headlong created collaborative dance theater in Philadelphia, and toured nationally. Andrew’s projects included CELL, a performance journey for one audience member at a time guided by your cell phone, and This Town is a Mystery, performances by four Philadelphia households in their homes, followed by a potluck dinner. Headlong’s work was funded by the The Creative Capital Foundation, The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Rockefeller Foundation MAP Fund, The Japan Foundation, and The National Endowment for the Arts.

Headlong's work was produced by The Philadelphia Live Arts Festival, Dance Theater Workshop (NYC), P.S. 122 (NYC), Central Park Summerstage, The Jade Festival (Tokyo), The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art. Currently, Andrew is focused on writing and independent creative projects. He runs a professional development program for artists in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and South Carolina. Andrew lives in West Philadelphia with his wife Elizabeth and their sons Jesse Tiger and Nico Wolf.

ABOUT THE ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAM
We are proud to offer selected topics from PDP workshops to the general public through the Online Learning Program. We are dedicated to extending our reach to artists who are new to Creative Capital’s professional development offerings, as well as those PDP alumni who are interested in a refresher course. Many of these courses are designed for individual artists of all disciplines, while others will be discipline-specific.

Most Online Learning sessions will be approximately 90 minutes in duration, including lecture and Q&A sessions. Webinars are taught and moderated live by talented workshop leaders, so the information is always up-to-date and engaging. Q&A sessions are included to be sure that all our participants have the chance to follow up on specific concerns.
