Message from The Icarus Sessions (organized by Seth Godin):
What a sensational event the first session was. In hundreds of cities around the world, people got together and made something happen. The stories of support for those brave enough to stand up are fabulous.

Here are the details:

The Icarus Sessions are a challenging new way to bring your art forward. Not to make a sales pitch, not to get customers or patrons, but to find the courage to stand up and say, "here, I made this."

A presentation at an Icarus Session is 140 seconds long. You can go shorter, but not a second longer. You can use slides, or handouts, or even better, just bring your enthusiasm. Videotape it if you like.

The assignment: Tell the group about your art. What have you created? What frightened you? What matters?

Check out the principles of the Icarus Session before you come: and and sign up when you arrive (first come first speak).

    We missed some of you that couldn't come at the last minute -- but hope you can make the next one. We all decided to change the time to the 1st Saturday night of the month 4 - 5:30pm. Feel free to stay after and enjoy the 1st Saturday night ARTwalk.

    Great Icarus Session at the ARTbar this morning! We were able to sqeeze in some discussion after each presentation, and the insights shared were truly inspirational! Nicole Steiman is a natural leader, keeping us on task but encouraging each of us to push past our comfort zones - in true Seth Godin fashion! Looking forward to our next Session!

    The first meeting at the ArtBar was very inspiring. I enjoyed the variety of people. It is such a beautiful, eclectic building and so perfect for an art meetup.
