This year’s event, hosted by CBC’s Sonali Karnick, features an exciting lineup of panelists eager to share their artistic journeys with you! Conference topics include strategies for thriving as an artist: earning a livable income as an artist, balancing life and personal career, and building your artistic brand.

Get inspired by our panelists who have learned to navigate the business side of the arts and to think like entrepreneurs. They’ll discuss how to diversify your income streams to help you pave the way toward your goals. Your journey may not be a straight line, and mistakes will be made along the way… but it is all part of the process!  

Juggling an art career while maintaining well-being is tough! From handling rejection to maintaining hectic schedules, artists must learn to know themselves and define what balance means to them both in the arts and personally. 

Who are you, as an artist? And what do you have to say? How do you want to make a difference?  This “Inspiring Artists” panel discussion will help you think creatively about your artistic identity, and how to share that with the world!
