Monday, March 12, 7:00-8:30pm (EST


Led by creative entrepreneur Neil Ramsay, this 90-minute webinar will provide a conceptual and practical overview of DIY, self-designed and directed artist residencies at non-traditional entities and venues. The creative attributes of working artists are often mimicked by many leading organizations and businesses, and this webinar will explore the idea of conceiving and proposing your own, personalized artist residency that stresses the key values that artists specifically bring to the table as creative individuals (as opposed to simply the value of their art work). The resulting residency will promote a laboratory-type inquiry that is mutually beneficial to both you and the collaborating entity.

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.
