ARTISTS' WORKING GROUPS
This year, PCB is adding Artists' Working Groups to our lineup of member benefits - offering members a chance to join a critical community of artists and peers, approximately every other month, to share ideas and feedback about works in progress or in conception.
These free Workings Groups will take place on weekends, either a Saturday or Sunday, and meet for about two hours at various host locations. Members can bring current, unfinished projects and ideas on which they would like feedback, and, occasionally, meetings may be topic or process-based (for instance, a group binding session). Space will be limited to 6-7 members per group meeting, first come first served, so we will be sure to announce each opportunity in advance!
Our next Artists' Working Group will be on Saturday, May 25, 2013 at Noon - registration is currently closed.
If you would like to attend an Artists' Working Group, get more information, or sign up to be a host for a meeting, please contact Susan Viguers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
