Getting Paid For It

THURSDAY AT 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM

Join us for a free, online discussion this Thursday, July 23 at 5:30 pm, Pacific, as Immersive Arts Alliance hosts a panel that spans the globe. Register, and be part of a critical conversation: Getting Paid For It: Innovative Art, Innovative Commerce.

In recent years, the emerging domain of Immersive and Experiential art has had an unprecedented impact on commercial event making, while radically expanding what the experience of entering and feeling the work of an artist can mean. With our panel, we'll be looking at the delivery system for Immersive and Experiential art, connecting to the wider art world in unique ways. We ask: what are the opportunities for artists to live and prosper as we move through and emerge into a changed landscape for the arts?

Hosted by Immersive Arts Alliance, a Bay Area nonprofit, this is a Webinar in the Zoom environment, and is offered for free. Registration is required.

When: Jul 23, 2020 05:30 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
Topic: Getting Paid For It
