April 25 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

OTL is hosting a FREE workshop and meet-up for folks interested in becoming and/or developing their skills as a multi-hyphenate artist in NYC! Sponsored by our BOOST program, this workshop is led by multi-hyphenate artists and BOOST Co-Chairs Jillian Vitko and Ayana Bey. In an industry where effort does not always garner desired results, creating your own work is almost essential. Topics include how to become multi-hyphenate artists, how to create your own artistic ecosystem, and the ways in which it can benefit your career. Wear many hats, make more art, and meet more like-minded people. See you there!

Where: Meaux Space 305 7th Ave 17th FL, NY NY 10001

Drinks will be available for purchase.
