I'm writing a book (as yet untitled) that will be a service to the rising generation of culture-makers and creative community changers. Many of them are students now, learning their craft and maturing in what they will communicate through the visual and performing arts. But their training won't necessarily prepare them for the realities of the arts marketplace.
Learn more about the book and the need for it in this 3-minute video (*or see below for a description).
I need your help to get the book completed and into these young people's hands in time for graduation season next spring.
Please consider joining the project by sponsoring a chapter, a page, or a paragraph:
All sponsors will receive a signed copy of the book and will be thanked in the Acknowledgements section.
The book is the first stage of a new project I've started. The Arbor Fellowship fills the gap in professional and entrepreneurial training,
I've gotten to know hundreds of talented, well-trained artists through working in professional development for artists for more than 15 years, and as an artist in theatre for more than 35 years. I don't want to see any more of them abandon their potential for serving God and their communities through their creative work. I hope you'll join me in supporting them.
If you'd like to chat more about it, please email me at [email protected]
*Many artists give up on their creative work after just a few years, because they can't figure out how to make it financially sustainable. Covering both theological and practical aspects of arts vocations, and including content from artists across disciplines who've made it work, the book will help to shape students' expectations and give them a good start in their professions.
