What we're about

Visual artists, writers, musicians, designers, architects, and other creative professionals dealing with isolation, frustration, overwhelm, being asked to work for free, and/or uncertainty about how to move to the next level with their creative career, despite skill in craft, determination and vision.

Network, laugh, support one another, find community and learn skills to more easily thrive. Make a living, make a life and make a difference with your creative gifts, together!

Each quarter there will be a short educational presentation on a core professional development topic, followed by introductions, and networking/socializing, either online or in person. Also, please join the larger online community of colleagues called the Creative Sustainable Livelihood Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1234492483292358) for more resources and connection.

Hosted by creative career coach and creative business teacher, Patricia Morrison, who has helped hundreds of creative professionals to create thriving creative practices and careers. Learn more about her at www.InnerFireOuterLight.com .
